Using Testing can be problematical as you've discovered. I'm assuming
that everything was working fine, then you did a dist-upgrade and the
long boot times began. I'm also assuming that your notebook is set to
connect to a network at boot up. So, turn off the wireless transceiver
(or disconnect your ethernet cable), reboot and see what happens.
Also, here's a link how best to install and use Testing like a
"rolling" release. Something I do not recommend.
