What I'm seeing is:
 1. a massive delay before *any* output (many seconds' worth)
 2. a short delay after "LWP::UserAgent::new: ()"
 3. a longer delay after"LWP::UserAgent::_need_proxy: Not proxied"

So the culprit may have been my upgrade to Perl 5.004_04, made
a couple of months ago.  {Sigh}  Now what could have caused
*that*?  It's a slow 486 33MHz box running Linux, but not *that*
slow.  Sounds like something (don't know what) isn't preloaded
or precompiled or something.  I took all the defaults, which is
what I did the time before (when I didn't have this delay).

On the other hand, Perl apps that don't use these modules
seem to run at normal speed.
