SubjectOdd root (and suid root) behavior

As of (at least) 1.99.2, an initial root login (or su root) after
system startup hangs for almost a minute on a 486DX4-100 machine. Once
logged in, though, everything procedes normally!

This (mis)behavior also applies to the first suid root program run as a
conventional user after login, if this helps.

I am running shadow passwords if that makes a difference. Sorry not be
more specific, but this is just so bizarre that I don't know where to
start! Absolutely _no_ log messages, BTW.
