Coming in on the side here, and feel free to ignore this. Is there
anything odd about your network setup? I've seen delays and cpu hogging
traced to that sort of thing. X, for instance, goes searching for you
online if you don't have a proper entry for in  /etc/hosts,
and this has lost some people 30 seconds in startup while they wait for
the timeout. 
In short, I'm saying 'pretend explorer is acting sensibly; what could it
be waiting for?'
