I downloaded TS 2.15 and I still see the delay. After some  
experimentation it seems that the delay shows only if you set the  
"Show Console" preference to "Always". Switching to "when error  
occurs" makes it go away (you have to quit TS and relaunch between  
changing these preferences). You should try a fairly long document,  
otherwise it's not easy to click on the pdf window before typesetting  
is done.
