Thanks for this.

If you don't have another machine handy you might be able to figure out

Although, I do have a laptop SSH sounded a bit beyond me, so I had a go with
the tty option. However, the output from top didn't really mean much to me,
other than there didn't seem to be any specific pattern of something hanging
around for a long time.

BUT after timing the delay twice yesterday (it took exactly 60s after
hitting return on the password for the panel to appear both times) after
doing the tty exercise, the panel is appearing in 6s.

I have no shut down totally, and rebooted three times and its now 6-7s

That's a couple of weeks I have been plagued with this, and there has been
no known changes since booting yesterday and booting today, but it seems to
have fixed itself.

Thanks for everyones help.
