gnome gui boots very slowly


My problem is that the gnome gui is booting very slowly (almost 10 minutes).
I can't figure out why. The boot procedure until the gui is going to be booted is normal.

Thanks for help

May be wrong file type of the wallpaper. My Gnome desktop work +- good, only the screensarver area: don't list any.
Other problem can be: erroneos video card drivers installed. If generic drivers is load for ATI (for example), the limit is 800*600

Could be a lot of things. I usually just back up and wipe my .gnome dir. Don't worry, it will rebuild a default. Have another window manager or be familiar with the terminal just in case.

ok, I have tried everything, screensaver out, no wallpaper, and created a new profile, didn't change anything, it still needs a lot of time when it boots.
