[OpenIndiana-discuss] extreme sloth on fresh install bootup

I've just installed oi on a vm (virtualbox) as guest on an older P4
3.06 with 2gb ram an running Debian wheezy as HOST OS.

I gave the oi OS only 900mb of ram.

On reboot following install I'm seeing what seems to be inordinate sloth
in the boot process.  As the services are being enumerated its taking
most of 1 second for each increase (up to 168) .. which is quite a lot
of seconds.

Or is this a one time thing and later reboots will be faster?

While I've been writing this I see now that things are slowing even
more.  Where the enumerator is taking more than a second now. 133 to
135 (of 168 services) took about 10 seconds.

This can't be normal eh?
