I have encountered this same bug delaying login with Ubuntu Gnome 16.04,
16.10, and 17.04. I am happy to apport-collect if that would be helpful.
I can also confirm that commenting out "load-module module-bluetooth-
policy" and "load-module module-bluetooth-discover" successfully worked
around the problem for me and also stopped the apport crash report
dialogs that I was getting at every login about pulseadio crashing.

pulseaudio causes long login delay waiting for bluetooth
Status in pulseaudio package in Ubuntu:
Kubuntu 16.04 --
I was experiencing a long delay when logging in, on the order of 20+
seconds. After entering the password on the splash screen, it would
stay there before showing the desktop.
journalctl revealed a timeout form pulseaudio waiting for a bluetooth
service (I don't not use bluetooth, and it is disabled, but I believe
I saw this even when I enabled it?)

a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply,
the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired,
or the network connection was broken.
I can fix the problem by editing /etc/pulse/default.pa and commenting
out both bluetooth lines ("load-module module-bluetooth-policy" and
"load-module module-bluetooth-discover" -- not sure if both are
I have seen other bugs relating to blocking calls to bluetooth causing
problems. Perhaps there are a few left.
