If I remember correctly that was the problem. I was using "home brew"
scripts to bring up my ethernet and I was not clearing the DNS entries,
every time I brought the interface down I would have the problem. I
believe that either time update or some other process was trying to do
DNS look-ups and they were failing because the interface was down. It
must have been causing something to block because my CPU load was always
very low but my whole system was very slow. Initially I rebooted every
time I had the problem. I believe I solved the problem by removing the
DNS entries from /etc/resolv.conf.

I could not believe it either. This was on my laptop and happened with
bot wireless and ethernet.
