I found that F16 was suddenly slow to start after some package updates were installed. I don't know with which set of updates the problem started though. :(

My symptoms are that the black and white Plymouth screen starts promptly, with the logo's background shape filled in quickly enough. When that's completed the logo appears but remains on the screen for about 20-25 seconds until finally the GDM logon screen appears. I have run Bootchart and produced a PNG but I don't have enough experience/knowledge to analyse the results.

It could be related to iscsi failing to load at boot time. Hit esc while booting and see if there is any message related to iscsi. If that is the case, try disabling iscsi

systemctl disable iscsi.service
systemctl disable iscsid.service

This is just a shot-in-the-dark guess (the Bootchart image will probably show the exact cause), but I've often found that there can be a long delay at the end of the boot up sequence if you have sendmail enabled, but it is not correctly configured to use an accessible mail server.

I noticed the same behavior: bootup which took about 30 seconds all of a sudden requires 5 minutes or more. Also running F16. I noticed a recent update in the yum log of grub.

More infos are fundamental in your case.

Can you attach boot.log and /var/log/messages ?
