Thanks for your answer! My problem is even more simple than yours: I
boot my computer with no Ethernet cable connected, when it comes to
mounting SMB mount points that are in /etc/fstab the computer keeps
trying for a really long time before giving up. Then X is started (with
XFce) but is very slow.
If I start in interactive mode and skip the SMB part everything is ok.

I realize it may not be related to XFce, but the correlation between
XFce and SMB surprises me...
