I've found out that delaying the startup applications after the login speed the process a lot. Here's how you do it:
Let's say I want to slow down Guake Terminal of 10 second, I'll put this:
Simply enough. Just make just in the Guake settings that "start at login" is unchecked. Otherwise, it'll always had a "shutter" entry with no delay, to the Startup Applications.
bash -c "sleep 10 && guake"
All my applications are delayed a little now (Especially Dropbox. Do this: bash -c "sleep 50 && dropbox start -i"). I guess I can get even more speed..
