I noticed that the second time I run nvim it loads much faster (on Windows 11).

Ideally, what I want is this something like nvim --warmup-then-exit, which I would run on session startup/login. How could I achieve this?

Why it faster? I don't see any spawned processes.

Environment: nvim 0.9.0 on Windows 11

Aside: I also noticed that the identical version+config in linux is substantially faster --- but that is a topic for another day.
