Most of this weird delay (4 seconds maybe) is between these two lines:

Loaded 29012258 password hashes with no different salts (Raw-MD5 [MD5 128/128 SSE4.1 4x3])


Node numbers 1-8 of 8 (fork)

whereas the delay between the "Node" line above and:

Each node loaded the whole wordfile to memory

is maybe only 1 second or less (the wordlist file is likely already
cached in RAM from previous invocations).

BTW, got even better time on a second invocation:

real    1m1.727s
user    4m48.066s
sys     0m22.143s

Still same 2x E5420 machine.
