Benign but a nuisance nonetheless. Kayamedic has a good point also re: reduced finger dexterity - add that to gloves and things can get difficult to grip or grab. I've had my bungies freeze to the deck also, and my hatches lose a bit of flexibility.
My rule of thumb is that everything takes a bit longer in colder weather.
Something else to consider as ice forms, is that wind can open and close open water routes, and block your previously open route back to the launch.
