This problem also occures when the server uses identd to help authenticate and the their is a problem with identd on the client side. This is similar to the DNS problem; basically something going amiss to slow down the process. Often putting a sniffer and watching the packets whiz by solves quickly identifies the problem (either DNS or identd or both).
