This sounds like a KAddressBook problem or something KAddressBook "inherits" 
through KDE PIMl libraries.
Seems Akonadi starts correctly (simply restarting KAddressBook makes it work), 
but KAddressBook seems to hang waiting for that startup.

If you are using the digital clock applet for Plasma, you could try enabling 
it's calendar integration just to see if KAddressBook starts correctly if 
something else is starting Akonadi before it gets to that.
