I've jsut downloaded the combo update (I have two ma's) - So, far, the reboot seemed to take forever (possibly due to me hardly ever rebooting the macs) ... but lurking about on the rumour sites seems to indicate that people are having issues with combo updates (the one that I'm most concerned about is the piece about graphical issues on the macbook).

So far, I haven't noticed any major issues ....

It's much more likely to be due to the size of changes, the system is rebuilding caches on boot. Also it may have had to check that the earlier EFI and Graphics firmware updates were already applied.

Downloaded and installed this update, went smoothly with me.
Restarted, then waited awhile then it done another restart and started up fine. (im using a MacBook Pro 17")
The longest time i waited is for it to download the update (due to Orcon still having speed issues!)

But every things seems to be still working fine...
