GarageBand '09 Very Slow to Start

GarageBand '09 is consistently taking over two minutes to start, from the time I double-click the app until the "Initializing..." window disappears and the main window appears. This didn't happen when I was running GarageBand '08.

"As noted in the question, my Console indicated an I/O error with the disk. I was afraid I'd need to replace the disk and re-install everything.

However, it turns out there was an easy workaround: I just made a copy of the GarageBand application, and trashed the original. The copy starts in a few seconds, as expected."
