I just started yast->hardware information to check whether I got a 2.8 or a
2.4 and guess what :-) the system hanged first while "detecting tape" and
then rebooted. No idea why. I imagine it has something to do with the USB
stick problem I was mentioning earlier, but it is ...eery. A Linux box
rebooting just like that. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Anyway, I cannot check for KDE start times since (i) I removed KDE from my
hard drive and (ii).... But wait, oh, I just go on another computer,
2.something as well.

...around 50 seconds, inclusive 10 seconds for the authentification (why
the hack pam_unix2 from SuSE needs 10 seconds and pam_unix from Debian only

The network is not busy at all, it's weekend now, noone is here, most of
the computers are shut down, almost no network traffic. But yes, it is an
NFS issue. However: Window Maker comes up almost instantly.
