I'm very much an Ubuntu/Kubuntu newbie, so may not be of much help here,  
but if you're not getting errors, etc., but are simply seeing huge  
slowdowns in startup, starting apps, etc., one thing you may want to look  
into is your font cache.  I ran Mandrake/Mandriva cooker for a couple of  
years, and that was often the cause of generalized slow-downs such as you  

May or may not be a bum steer, but thought I'd throw it out there.
