Problem with weld bead features causing extremely long file open time

Is anyone else having problems with the weld bead feature causing long open times? I have an assy with ~50 peices and a file size of 17MB; after welds were added to the assy and to the multiple configs the file size is 23MB. However, the original file opens in ~45 seconds, and the file with weld beads takes 15 minutes. These file sizes dont seem to be that big, and the open times for other assys here that are in the 50MB range are close to 1 minute. Is there any way to help this problem?
