gpg --edit-key when the key has many signatures

sometimes when editing a key (in order to sign a specific uid associated
with the key) it takes quite a while until the command prompt shows. It
seems to be related to the number of signatures on the key and occurs
also when only the key to be signed and the signing key are in the
public keyring.
Is there a way to speed this up? I've tried the various --no-XXX and
--skip-... switches, but didn't find anything that matches.

Kind regards and TIA


P.S.: I'd appreciate being CC'ed in replys.
