Super-slow response, not quite dead

Tried a reboot, to see if this was a problem on first start only.
Checked timing as follows (I need to get a life!)
22 minutes with just the tan-Human ubuntu splash-mat showing and then
very suddenly it moved through the various icons across the bottom to
the gray screen w/ ubuntu
+2 minutes and the "show desktop" icon in lower-left pops in; within
seconds upper-left and lower-right icons are also on the
+1 minute and the clock shows up
25 minutes after boot and I still have a long wait to get action from
the menu selection.
Re-boot and re-install (revert to) 4.01 Preview.
Anyone else see anything like this? I believe I was getting the same
result with Daily 20040927 FWIW.
