Hello Volker,

thanks for the quick reply. Just took the log you requested; it's available at
http://speedshare.org/download.php?id=DFF4FCB13 (~63 kB gzipped). The log starts
at the first line after pressing the OK button in XP's login dialog. I have
inserted a comment at the position of the delay; it's at line 1797. Then I cut
off the rest starting at the point when the profile is loaded (after ntuser.*).
Perhaps this delay is a very normal thing in Samba/NT4-style domains. I can only
compare it with my university's Win2k3 domain where there is no delay at all
between pressing OK and the "loading your personal settings" box.
