Binaries spinning in relocate_doit()

Is there any particular reason that in the past day or two, most of my gnome 
apps (gedit, gnome-panel, nautilus) get hung in at least one thread in 
relocate_doit() and take 100% cpu?  Other threads still continue to run, but 
whatever thread does get blocked usually looks like this (from gnome-panel):
