Yum seems to be running rather slow and using excessive amounts of cpu
### Here's the start of the session ###

### Here's what 'top' reports 30 minutes later ###
top - 15:30:15 up 1 day, 3:28, 11 users, load average: 1.23, 1.38,

I'm not particularly concerned about the %CPU usage, but the 18:00.92
minutes of cpu time and 215m of ram usage seem just a tad bit high.
I'm running yum-2.0.4 from the yum-20040103 snapshot on a 500mhz PIII
with Mandrake 9.2 installed.
"du /var/cache/yum" reports 55M of files (headers,etc).
"wc -l /var/cache/yum/*info" indicates I have 6681 package headers.
Anything else I can tell you?
