Hi All (again):

It seems I was guessing too much. Perhaps my problem is not fc-cache.
What happens is that with any new day the first xelatex run is extremely
Could be 5 minutes before pass the line
This is XeTeX, Version ...
I am doing a system that produces pdf documents on demand from a website. I
cannot ask the user to wait "sometimes" 5 minutes.
I know is not fc-cache because I substituted it with a dummy file and the
problem is still there.
What does XeTeX before launching?
Any pointers to the source code so I can investigate myself?
Would the same problem arise on MiKTeX?

Again, thanks for your help in advance,
