I'm having a similar problem, ater installing Mavericks, Disk Utility is slow to open, the app opening animation (window magnification) gets stuck halfway through for a couple of senconds and then proceeds. I have a mid 2009 macbook pro 15" with a vertex 3 ssd

I recently did a FRESH install of Mavericks. I made a copy of Mavericks to USB, after a secure erase I installed and then downloaded Mavericks from the App Store and installed so I could get the Recovery disk back to make disk repairs (if needed).
Same issue as before.

Same issue. After upgrading and seeing this issue, I made a clean install but Disk Utility open the same way. The app opening window get stuck at 50% of its size and transparent for 1-2 seconds then open full size. I have checked it on a MBP late 2008 (2,4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - HDD - 4 Go RAM) , iMac mid 2011 (i7 Quad - HDD - 16 Go RAM - 2 Go RAM video) and Macbook Air 13" Mid 2012. One friend got the same issue on its MBP 13" 2011 with SSD.
No matter the hardware, it really seams a bug in Mavericks

Still having this problem..........surely there are many others experiencing the same or similar issues. Apple support is NO help.

I have the same problem as well on a Mac Pro 3,1 with an SSD and 10.9.1. It works fine after it finally loads. Fresh installs do nothing to help it (I've installed Mavericks on several different machines now with the same result), and the update that I put on there today didn't fix it.

I'm seeing this too on my Mac Pro, 3.33 GHz 6 core, running 10.9.2. Disk Utility gets stuck halfway through for a couple of senconds and then proceeds. Anyone know of a ftx?
