Question sparse bundle slowness

I have a clone of my main hard drive stored on a NAS as a sparse bundle.
I use a different volume (just a bootable FW drive with my utilities on board) to boot from when performing a smart update.
The sparse image has the same name as my main volume (hdd).

The problem - if I mount the sparse image while booted from my main drive (clones of each other), the mounting takes about 3 minutes, then navigation of the image is very slow, then unmounting takes about 3 minutes again.
Mounting/unmounting of the clone, when system booted from the external maintenance volume is near instantaneous.

Is this expected? Would this be due to the volume/clone having the same volume name?? I restored the sparse image to a spare drive last night, and it seems to be fully intact....
