No. I have a local mirror on that machine for my home machines. The slow 
down seems to be especially noticeable while doing dependency checking.

I am going to try rebuilding the rpmdb and do some testing with rpm 
to see if it appears slow as well.

I also checked to see if there was any run away logging. (I have had selinux 
warnings slow things down a few times.)

I might also check on journalling options. Right now I am using journal_data 
and maybe some change has made that more painful.
