After dist-upgrade desktop takes very long to load panels on Xubuntu 12.04

Bug Description

lightdm causes some trouble after doing "apt-get dist-upgrade" to the newest kernel "3.2.0-30.48-generic" on a fresh installed Xubuntu 12.04.1.

After the login screen and the login process you just see the wallpaper of the workspace and the mouse. It takes very long time to load the panels (about 1min). In this time it seems like the PC is doing nothing at all.
Using no Nvidia driver makes no difference.

But using GDM fixes the problem as temporary workaround.

P.S.: I also sometimes have to wait a longer time before loading the lightdm login screen.

System and Hardware:
Ubuntu 12.04 (precise)
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10GHz
SanDisk SSD
GeForce GTX 460

I tried it now on my HP Probook Notebook -> same bug.
Fresh installation of Xubuntu 12.04.1, then "apt-get dist-upgrade" to the newest kernel "3.2.0-30.48-generic".
In this notebook is an ATI card, but it happens also without the driver, so it seems not ATI or NVIDIA related..
