Default python-updater won't complete


On a 586 machine, 600 MHz, 128 meg of ram. python-updater just sits:
* Starting Python Updater from 2.4 to 2.5 :

and never completes. I tried several times, same result.

The machine only an infrequently used web server, serving up about 6
static content web pages.

Does python-updater require more ram to run? the machine is
minamalistic, it runs apache2 and not much else.

I did recently switch the profile to 2008. but is has
had 2 emerge -u world updates (along with emerge sync).
I've even run revdep-rebuild and
emerge -p --update --deep --with-bdeps=y world'
which comes back clean.

These 2 lines of top are suspicious to me:

5513 root 20 0 1648 428 348 D 0.0 0.3 0:00.10 scanelf
5514 root 20 0 0 0 0 Z 0.0 0.0 0:00.00 python-update <defunct>

bugs.gentoo.org does not reveal anything useful.

thoughts and ideas are most welcome?
