It seemed to be stopped waiting for the initial activation of the root
lv before continuing with the boot.  This manifested as a several minute
delay before the gui came up, and when I checked the bootchart image, it
was indeed sitting running lvm for a long time before everything else.
This is with Ubuntu 10.10.
