On all my machines (768 MB of RAM and 1024 MB of RAM), I was able to *easily* cut down my login time from 40 seconds to 20. I suggest that some form of readahead is hooked up into the gnome login by default in ubuntu, using only the most commonly preloaded stuff (ex: nautilus, the gnome libraries, the window managers, etc).
