I doubt this is it, but I'll offer it because I just spent two days fighting 
the exact same problem on a fresh install of a different distro. The problem 
- it turned out that NDISwrapper was my culprit. I don't have all the issues 
fleshed out, yet, but, I throw this out since our similar events are so 
coincidental. In my case, I had NDISwrapper on my laptop to get my broadcom 
wireless to be able to use its Windows driver - when I configured it, I had 
it set to start on boot, and that's what threw it. It spent a huge amount of 
time trying to start wlan0 and was unable to (for reasons I'm still trying to 
understand), and that hogged all my system's resources - boot time slowed to 
about 15 minutes
