Public bug reported:

For some reason with the final of Dapper Drake and with Edge Knot 1
Gnome is PAINFULLY slow to load and even use.  The system boots at full
speed and GDM works perfectly.  Gnome loads the background and then
takes several minutes to load the menubar and then applets one at a
time.  When I open the terminal it takes over a minute and during this
time the CPU is mostly throttled down as far as it goes.  It's very
strange and I really don't know where to start with troubleshooting.

Sharp PC-AV18 laptop
AMD Athlon XP 1600
