Can you describe what happens when you try to access a users home directory?
I'll just add here that I don't find it necessary to defrag OS X becuase of the way it handles files. I have not done that in years on a Mac.

We have about 18 imac and 24 OD User. Some users complain that their peformance on their machine ist extremly bad. When we switch the user on the same machine the other user works well.
Wenn we login this user to another imac wo runs normal the user complains it is still slow. The user complaine he he get the whole time the spinning wheel and request are slow.
We can reduce it to a number of Users and it isn't definitifly a problem of the local iMac or the server. The server hast new highspeed drive for 4 months now, this are only 40% full.
I checked the fragmentation, Drive Genius 3 reported it is 27% fragmentated
When I optimized the whole drive it will optimzed for the whole harddisk, but not based und optimized for each OD User :-(
1) I am afraid that optimized while slowdown the OD performance because the files belong to a OD User will be mixed over the harddisk
2) I see the adminitrator has no right to see the files within the Home Directory of the OD User, so will a optimize works on this level for the content of each Home Directory?

I see. So you are logged into the server as Administrator when trying to access all data in the home folders. So what you do is log in as Root user and then you have unrestricted access to all the data on the homes.
If the problematic user logins are always the same users, and those users homes are hosted on the same home dir share as the users that do not have a login delay, then I would suspect that something about the user homes are the problem. So what happens if you create a couple of new users and fresh homes, as a troubleshooting measure? Do they have consistently normal login times?
