Yes, I do understand what you are saying and I look into the creation of the new profile. The thing is, that this is the same profile that was initially working fine and now it takes so long to load the console environment.
I let you know what I come up.
Thank you, George

Understood. One suggestion is that the delay could because by an X related networking issue. Keep in mind that all these X consoles use the network, either loopback as localhost and/or as external TCP/IP sockets. When there is a delay in bringing up an X term, it is often network related (X authentication, network problems, etc.) Did you make any changes to your network config lately?

Well, I verified all the addressing and I also ran the file system check command and when I rebooted the console worked fine finally. So, I hope that this fsck fixed the problem. How often the system administrator should run the administrative tasks and what time normally that is done? I do lately lots of configurations with apache, tomcat, redoak, jrun, and etc. Then I get rid of it if something's not working right and install it again. I am not sure how much of these reinstallations can conflict with the regular system setup?
Thank you for you help, George
