Maya very slow to load image planes

I've built a GUI for a client which works fine here but they are having an issue with it where the images inside the GUI are taking 30 seconds each to load. The GUI has two tabs, each with a camera window and some controllers, both cameras have image planes with the names of the controllers on them. I've tried having those images both as camera image planes and just mapped onto planes as textures but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
Both images are jpegs, 60kb in size so I'm puzzled as to why Maya struggles with them.

Both my client and I are using Maya 2012 for this on Windows, I'm on Win 7 though while he's using Vista.

It's frustrating as I can't reproduce it at all here, the images load right up, even on an older machine with a 9800 in it and just 3gb of Ram. On my work machine (16gb, 580gtx) it's even faster of course.

Any ideas what might cause this? Any ideas much appreciated.
