I'm still guessing that there is a GPO, logonscript or something like 
that, which causes this. I tried RDP in my test environment, too and see 
no problems.

Maybe an ACL on a GPO, logon script, share, etc. denies access and the 
client had to wait for one or more timeouts.

Can you try it with a user account, that doesn't have a logonscript, any 
share mappings, etc. Maybe use a completely fresh account, just to make 
sure, that nothing like auto-mapping shares exists in the user profile. 
And maybe disable all GPOs.

Do you see anything in the _Windows_ Event log?
