Do you use a broker?
If so, login may hang if the broker does not recognize the current client.
In any case, look at the broker log (if broker is used) and p4d log to see which
commands are sent from this client to the server.
Another case can be (we've seen this) if P4V has the current client
(possibly set in the initial dialog, which is set not to be displayed), which
has thousands of lines in the view.
In that case, P4V starts collecting lots of information about open files, etc,
and with the client view being too big, this may take a very long time.
