I find that my 11.10 desktop takes a significant time, to start-up after the log-in. (approximately 20 -30 secs)

I was wondering if there were any tools that can help.

I am aware of bootchart, however the overall boot (from switch one to log-in screen is fast, its the point after that fustratingly slow.)

For now I would like to be able to see, what takes up the time at that specific point.
