Gnome startup awfully slow (7.3, gnome2.30)

I also have a similar problem (slow start-up) with gnome 2.30. In my case gnome-panel stops for some time (30 secs ?) then outputs a message to the console and then everything is ready to accept input. I can't attach the output message now.
In my /etc/rc.conf I just added
and then created '.xinitrc' in ~ with the following line
I start everything with 'startx'.
This way I can see error messages on the tty, where 'startx' has been launched.
I can not say where debug messages are sent once you also enable gdm.
