Funny, at work been having a nasty problem and when we turned on extra
debugging it went away. Figures!
Actually, I just rebooted again and noticed the delay in console output
again. I can here the disk being very busy so it's not like it's not doing
Here's the one I just ran.

I don't have auto-login enabled. I always log in at the gdm prompt.

I don't need the modem_manager. I assume I need wpa-supplicant for my
wireless WPA security. Yes, I need the database. Mediatomb probably could
be removed. I was playing with it and a new blue-ray player that does UPnP

9.10 seems to have a few problems with this laptop that I didn't have with
9.04. I'm seeing hard freezes, often on the GDM login screen where I have
to power-cycle. I've also seen lockup when logged in -- although I'm using
Chrome quite a bit now and I wonder if that might be related.
And an annoying thing that is new with 9.10 is that I often have a keyboard
and mouse plugged into the USB ports and often at GDM screen the mouse works
but not the keyboard. I have to unplug the keyboard and plug it back in and
then most of the time it will work. Never did that with 9.04. My laptop is
a few years old so it *might* be hardware, but seems too much of a
coincidence that it changed right after moving to 9.10.
