That's because of the secure random number generator that's used to create the session ID
- it takes quite some time to initialize.

You could try adding 


to the JVM's command line (i.e. add the above string to TOMCAT_OPTS) which makes Tomcat use
the standard JAVA random number generator... I guess they're using the SecureRandom generator
because it'll make guessing the next session ID harder based on the current one, but I think
that that's not needed for development purposes, especially with that speed hit incurred by
using the SecureRandom generator...

Hope this helps.
