It doesnt look like its hardware related. All my machines have AMD CPU's.
The one which exhibits this have AMD video, but one of others have AMD video
too. This behavior happens both with radeon and fglrx drivers. Also this is
not systemd related as someone suggested early because i left this one on

Also i tried to monitors what happens when it gets stuck - apparently at
one point in tde startup process two kdesktop process started, one finishes
almost instantly and other goes to sleep. When it stuck the second process
doesnt finish and just sits here. If you kill it (the one which is not in
Sl state) tde stratup would proceeds into half-functioning tde session
(kicker related stuff works, but desktop is not loaded and background
remains from startup. Apparently some other services do not start too
because its complains when you try to logout)
