I'm under the impression that you're requesting all the properties
from a WFS layer, while using only the geometric one (the first you
find I guess, since there may be many) to depict the layer.
It would be better to just load what you need, and then eventually
load the full feature on demand. On a layer with a crazy number
of properties like states (more than 100 if I remember properly)
it should help.
