I'm running mine through the gui and getting the same delay.  Move the
up2date window around and it looks to be frozen, and CPU usage by the
program is at 100%.  It eventually gets over it, and get's onto
downloading the packages.

How many packages are you trying to update?  If it's as many as I think it
is (I had a fresh Fedora Core Test 3 install and it took -forever- to
download all the headers, test them, download and install the packages),
then it's probably normal.  An hour seems to be like a long time though...
