I've had a similar problem in the past: after a reboot I'd try and log
in and the prompt would hang for 10-20 seconds. It ended up being
pulseaudio. I disabled autospawn in /etc/pulse/client.conf and it
fixed the issue. You might try that?

What's in your $TERM's config file? .bashrc, .zshrc, etc. Or, more
generally, /etc/profile?
