Do not know about Panther, but I had the same problem and then found

Cleaning up accelerated the opening a bit. But, the best thing is to
just not quit the program. Simply close the box and leave it in RAM.
Also, I have noticed that OS X.2.6 uses memory much differently than any
OS 9.x and earlier. I have about ten programs (both OS X and Classic)
living in RAM (type) memory including PhotoShop Elements and MS OfficxeX
with no problem. and they all open very quickly. Never quit anything,
just close the box.
