When I launch SlickEdit 2007 Trial from the Applications folder in Finder using the SlickEdit icon, it always prompts me to do a one-time background caching of the font list.

When I launch it from the terminal using the following command, I do not get the background caching prompt.
/Applications/SlickEdit2007Trial.app/Contents/slickedit/bin/vs

When I launch it from the terminal using the following command, I get the background caching prompt every time.
open /Applications/SlickEdit2007Trial.app

If an instance of SlickEdit 2007 is already running, when I start another instance via Finder, I am prompted to do the one-time background caching and when that completes, the existing SlickEdit window is reused.

When I launch SlickEdit 2007 using Eclipse, I get prompted to do the background checking twice before SlickEdit starts.

Is there something inside the Finder object that causes this background caching that gets bypassed when I launch the vs binary directly?
