this is correct, however this happens only once. it will generate a
key for use with the dropbear SSH daemon. successive boots will use
the generated key and should therefore not slow down the bootup

As Han Chao answered, it is likely an issue with DHCP timing out
during the init process. (have a look in /etc/rc3.d and you could see
what gets started).
