Anybody care to hazard a guess
 why one of my machines is so slow to login?
Takes 10 seconds from password to a prompt.

It's not /etc/profile or all the /etc/profile.d/*.sh scripts
 a debug echo in /etc/profile showed
 they happen late and quickly.

It's not ssh, setting debug logging
 suggests that happens early and quickly.
And the delay happens when "su"ing too.
just shakin' the cluebat tree,

No matter how much you pay for software,
 you always get less than you hoped.
Unless you pay nothing, then you get more.
