I don't think they ever got upstart user sessions working under systemd, atleast they arent working on ubuntu GNOME

gdm logs are in /var/log/gdm

However if you have a really slow boot (like minutes) then probably some service is hanging and systemd waits for a timeout before killing it.

In that case you can boot with systemd.log_level=debug and dump the full logs from journalctl into a systemd bug
