Does your PlayBook seem to be taking longer to boot?

I learned something new today, maybe others were aware of this, but I certainly wasn't.

Recently I noticed my shinny new 4G LTE PlayBook was taking longer to boot-up: as in 4:40 off the battery and 3:35 on  the charger and I couldn't understand why. Then I decided to do a backup of my PlayBook, which I hadn't done in almost a month. Low and behold, after the backup was complete, my boot times were back to what they were when I first bought it: 2:35 off the battery and 1:30 on the charger. I much happier now. Why doing a backup has this effect I'm not certain, but if you notice your boot times getting longer you know what my suggestion would be.

Interesting...not sure why that would make a difference either.
