The Xubuntu splash screen stays there for at least 5 minutes, often longer. Once the desktop finally comes up, everything runs normally.
When booting without the splash screen, I see the mouse cursor (arrow) on top of the boot messages text screen while waiting for the desktop.
During these minutes, top command shows me a CPU load of about 75% from Xorg and 25% from xfce4-settings
Any idea how to fix this?
Running Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS, installed from Xubuntu 12.04.2 DVD and fully updated

I cannot see any relevant information in the log files:
