Apply plugin takes up to 5 seconds

I enabled the Build Scan plugin in my Android project and noticed an additional delay during the configuration phase. With --debug enabled I can see there is a delay of about 5 seconds after the line
"Build operation ‘Apply plugin to root project ‘android’’ started"

here is a snippet of the log with timestamps:
13:59:52.026 [DEBUG] [org.gradle.internal.progress.DefaultBuildOperationExecutor] Build operation ‘Apply plugin to root project ‘android’’ started
13:59:57.036 [DEBUG] [org.gradle.model.internal.registry.DefaultModelRegistry] Project : - Registering model element ‘tasks.buildScanPublishPrevious’ (hidden = false)
13:59:57.037 [null] [org.gradle.cache.internal.DefaultFileLockManager]
13:59:57.037 [DEBUG] [org.gradle.cache.internal.DefaultFileLockManager] Waiting to acquire shared lock on daemon addresses registry.
13:59:57.037 [DEBUG] [org.gradle.cache.internal.DefaultFileLockManager] Lock acquired on daemon addresses registry.

and here is a build scan:

Is this additional delay experienced by others or is there perhaps something wrong with my project setup? I’m happy to provide more details as needed

You’re probably being hit by this terrible regression in MacOs Sierra that still hasn’t been fixed:

Yes that fix solved the issue good catch!
