I think I found the problem,

System/Login window/General/Default session had changed to Mythbuntu 
session. Changing that back to Gnome got things loading up in a few 
seconds rather than a few minutes.

Loging out for a different user to log in still takes a few seconds 
longer than I'd like. Is there any way to speed that up?
