I removed the custom ISF folder I had Magic pointed to and also rebooted. Things seem to be back to normal. It was no exaggeration with 5 minutes, I literally timed it to around 5m30s to startup previously. Not sure why, but it now scans the same custom ISF folder and starts up almost immediately. :?

Both the FFT Color Lines and the Spectrum modules would benefit from an option to specify the number of lines each module generates. Currently, they both seem to be fixed at 10 lines.
