Emerge -puv really slow?

For the last couple of weeks I've noticed that emerge -puv world takes
an absolute age on my machine (currently at 5 mins and counting), while
the cpu gows to 100%. The little emerge rotator bar that spins while it
calculates dependencies moves extremely slowly. Is there any known bug
that causes this? How can I go about troubleshooting?
My guess is you have removed the portage-cache before using emerge.
Normally this happens when a previous emerge --sync fails because of an
error or there are identical timestamps on the server and the local machine.
When this happens you have no portage-cache because portage deletes the
cache first when syncing. If the timestamps are identical the cache is
not regenerated. If there is an error while syncing the cache is missing
too, because the regeneration of the cache is done in the end of the sync.
So the cache is regenerated when doing the first emerge and this takes
quite a while. Even on a Core2Duo firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz i takes more then three
In case of the timestamp issue i think it is a bug . I think portage
should first check the timestamps and if they are different it should
delete the cache!
