No, we can't. I checked it again after cleaning up the related homedir: 
It's even 170 MiB of data created at first login (most consuming are 
icon cache and theme cache both with about 82 MiB each). And the load 
value was about 1,5; later logins are faster cause there isn't much more 
stored in addition.
(BTW: MATE config/cache is about 2 MiB after first login.)

The seconds may extend to a minute or more on real hardware with 
hard disks, I guess.
