Federico Mena-Quintero has a series of articles about the GNOME startup
process: http://www.gnome.org/~federico/index.html#improving-login-time

Behdad Esfahbod also:
http://mces.blogspot.com/2008/10/improving-login-time-part-1-gnome.html

These are not cross-referenced to Ubuntu releases, but I suspect are
talking about the same inefficiencies in gnome-session,
gnome-settings-daemon etc.

Personally, for me the desktop startup is (or feels) I/O-bound, with the
panel applets showing up one by one with agonizing pauses in between and
the disk running at full throttle.
