After rebooting the system appears to do nothing for at least 5 seconds (log in and beachball before the dock appears on the screen). HDD is perfect condition (it passes smart tests and the apple hardware test) and OS install is only a few weeks old, what is happening?

This seems to reduce (but not remove the problem), although I'm not sure why since my "login items" entry is blank

Home is everywhere and nowhere.

It prevents any Login Items from loading and I think also 3rd party LaunchAgents/Deamons, maybe even more.

Try manually update again, download the Combo 10.8.4 Updater from Apple and reapply, this can solve it.

I'd suggest that but this fresh install is like a month old.

Was this the first boot since update? That's always crazy so for me, have you tried restarting again to see if it's faster?
