Aha! Browsing my system logs from yesterday (when I was seeing the bug) I came across a few of these:

Dec 12 15:52:19 MikeG4 DirectoryService[41]: Failed Authentication return is being delayed due to over five recent auth failures for username: mike

That sounds to me like an OS bug that might cause a drastic slowdown, no? I don't know what DirectoryService is, but it sounds like something involved with filesystem operations to me.

Googling this log message reveals some discussion of cases in which an app that uses authentication suddenly fails to authenticate properly.

Anyone else see this in their system.log file?
