This isn't a bug based just on the info provided. Eclipse can't assume
something didn't change in the web application outside of Eclipse while
Eclipse was stopped. Thus, some check would be needed to determine if
web application had changed. Rather that perform this check at startup,
it is incorporated into the publish. If the web application was
previously synchronized, then that publish shouldn't actually copy any
files and complete quickly.
Unfortunately due to Bug 206087, WTP 2.0.x may do a full publish by
mistake for the first publish after starting Eclipse. A fix is coming
in WTP 2.0.2. At startup, the web application will still say Republish,
but it should be a fairly fast publish that simply figures out you are
