see F8 X11 -> gdm-greeter time:
compared to F9 preview:
What hardware is this with?
Can you attach the output of 'strace -tt -o /tmp/whatever X -pogo' from the F9
system? This is almost certainly hardware dependent, so I'd like to see what
you're slowing down on.

Hmm, I think its not the X Server itsself. Therefore component xinit, with all
that stuff going on in the xinit scripts.
Anyway... here is the strace attached.
DDC still takes forever, as expected. You also seem to have a gratuitous
sleep(1) in there at the end. Pretty sure that was from the keyboard driver,
and should be fixed by now. What version of xorg-x11-drv-keyboard do you have
that was a F9 Preview Live i686... dunno what is on there..
I think that 1s stall was actually a bug between xtrans and libX11. Fixed
upstream, gonna update that shortly.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Fixed in libXfont 1.3.3-1.fc10, closing.
