rpm seems very slow

I have noticed that rpm seems very slow and uses a lot of cpu now. I
particularly noticed when uninstalling a old kernel with rpm -e times
in the order of several minutes. I did the same on a FC1 system and
found uninstall times to be much faster

[root at xeon root]#  time rpm -e kernel-smp-2.4.22-1.2132.nptl

real    0m7.205s
user    0m0.490s
sys     0m0.460s
