Gnome 2.10 very slow to load

I'm running lfs on a dell 8600. I have finished installing Gnome 2.10 but have found that it is very slow to load. Tha desktop takes almost 1 minute to appear. I have looked at ps aux while Gnome is running and it shows that nautilus is using about 80% of the cpu. When I do a make, gcc uses about 20% but nautilus is still at about 80% and it makes the machine almost impossible to use.

It takes more than a minute to open the computer icon on the desktop!

Is nautilus the cause of the slowness? If so, what is it hunting for that is taking up all this cpu?
