20 minutes? Mine boots in some 30 seconds or so. Doesn't linux do somekind of hostname lookup when you type in your username? I've had some computers where there's a small delay between displaying the password prompt after typing your username.. probably due to hostname resolving being slow. Now if your raspi is totally jammed (as it seems?) the whole hostname lookup might hang.
