[mapguide-users] startup problems on windows?

I have a theory why this is happening.

When the MapGuide Server is starting up, it is initializing the Font Manager
(for Rendering/Stylization) among other things. If you happen to have some
really chunky fonts installed (ie. Any Korean/Japanese/Chinese font), the
bulk of the 30 seconds that Windows will allocate for service startup will
be used up trying to read in these massive fonts.

If you look at mgserver.exe under Process Monitor you'll see it spammed with
file read calls to these massive font files. I think this is what's causing
the service to not start up the first time round.
