Many programs are fairly slow to start on my computer, despite it being relatively new (core i5). Suspecting a heavy CPU usage, I started gnome-system-
Using the "top" command, however, revealed the real CPU use, with the "initctl" process taking 100%CPU, even 1 hour after startup.
I upgraded to roaring ringtail before checking this but the symptoms were the same with quantal quetzal, so there is a fair chance the causes were identical.
