[opensuse-gnome] mouse pointer stays busy for 30 seconds after logging in

I'm seeing a minor issue on OpenSUSE 11.1 in which the mouse pointer stays in its "spinning circle" mode for 30 seconds or more after logging into Gnome. I've tried checking running processes but there does not appear to be any processes that are causing this. The process table is identical both shortly after logging in while the mouse pointer is spinning, and a minute after login at which point the pointer has gone back to normal.

I realize this is a minor cosmetic issue, however it is kind of annoying because it seems to be telling the user "don't do anything yet, the computer is busy." And the user will just sit staring at the spinning wheel impatiently, even though Gnome has completely finished loading and is ready for use.

Anyone know what might be causing this?
