In my test it loaded 8s faster (time betreen DOMContentLoaded and load
events) after adding "break;" in initTab() for 'statustabs_queries'.
Firebug profiler shows that PMA_createChart executes in 500 ms, but it
also causes 8s of delay. I guess it is caused by page reflows during
chart drawing. It definitely shouldn't happen during page load, even
500ms is a lot.
