It can take a long time, anyway, usually lots of stuff has to get paged
in, etc.  It's usually about 30-40 seconds on my machine, long enough
that many times I _have_ gone away and done something else -- and even
worse, I use the `autologin after 30s' function of gdm, so often I find
it's logged me back in by the time I get back... :-)
