I suppose there could be a bug.  I just verified that it's absolutely

[ Spacing Emphasis Mine -- there is no break (except time) here ]

So it looks like it took almost two hours to run the setfiles on a 4GB
filesystem.  The rest of the import was only a minute or three.

I'm happy to help debug this however I can in order to fix any potential
bugs.  However I admit it probably wont affect me any more -- I don't
expect to migrate many more VMs.  Still, I'm happy to work towards the
common good.  :)
