Question Problem with KDE startup and login


In my company we use Mandriva on the workstations. Our network uses NIS to authenticate the users and the home folder is shared via NFS (NB! Not automount).

Lately I have started to upgrade the PC's to Mandriva 2006.0 and has run into problems on some PC's.

What happens is that it take approx 3 hours to start KDE when a user logs in via KDM (Using GDM or XDM gives same result). This only happens when the user has the homefolder in the NFS share. If the user is local or the user has the home folder locally, this does not happend.

I have seen this behavior on 4 different PC's. One old PC (Hewlett Packard), one new laptop (Dell Latitude), one new PC (Dell Dimension 5150), and one new laptop(Asus).

I have search around on the net for simular situations and found a couple, but no answer :-(
Base on the findings I have tracked the problem to have with kcminit->klauncher.

Removing kcminit from the startkde script partly works, but the something else does not work.

This did not seem to be a problem when running 10.1 of 2005LE. I started with 2006.0.
Does anyone have any help to offer?
Can upgrading to KDE3.5 possibly help?
