If you can send me the dted or tell me which one it is (I have the NGA
DTED Library) I will test it on windows for you and let you know How
fast I can load it for a comparison.

If you can file a bug report on this, I'll have Mateusz look into what
happening.   Other than cache thrashing, I can't think of any reason
should be noticably slower on windows than anywhere else.
