This copy had been running for about a day.  I restarted it some
time yesterday to see if that would help the speed; it didn't.

The memory cache was set to 4096 KB and the disk cache was set
at 50000 KB.  Clearing the caches didn't appear to help, nor
did setting them to memory = 1024 KB and disk = 4096 KB and
then clearing them again.

Any other insights?
