I hadn't noticed that, but I'll look next time I install something.
It could be unrelated to rpm, but more how xdg is implemented in Mageia 
vs Mint.
(Since both would use xdg with .desktop files.)
Mageia uses the same method with menus as Mandriva did, which 
accommodates both Gnome (which I use) and KDE.  That could account for 
the delay.
At least a 10-second delay isn't a major problem.

Regards :)
