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....

I don't have any idea why that would be - perhaps you're running some software that's interfering with networking, file access, etc?

Try starting up in, say, Safe Boot to see if that makes a difference.

I'll try that, last night I deleted the old sparsebundle, and made a new one, with a name different to its parent volume.... still had trouble (slow) opening when booted from the volume it was cloned from.....

Safe boot - can't connect to the NAS at all....
So a basic lion install on a FW drive can open/close these large sparsebundles without delay, and my main account on internal drive takes 2-3 minutes to do either....
An error I noted in console, which appeared at the end of the pause, as the image mounted:

Apr 12 21:51:56 xxx-MacBook-Pro fseventsd[40]: event logs in /Volumes/FW800-backup/.fseventsd out of sync with volume. destroying old logs. (560 1 850)
Apr 12 21:52:00 xxx-MacBook-Pro fseventsd[40]: log dir: /Volumes/FW800-backup/.fseventsd getting new uuid: 04C3AC65-EF65-4F4E-8EE9-62FED2737EEA

Any ideas?
I've also disabled time machine and spotlight with no change.....

The implication to the above is that the drive was incorrectly ejected, and that it needed a new fsevent database. That also likely means the delay in mounting is because it's doing an fsck on the volume.

Possibly - I think I restarted the sucker while waiting for it to eject before - but this behaviour is every time I try and mount from my main account. Every time I try and mount from a different user on my main drive its perfect, as it is from a different boot drive....
Are there any preference files you think I should delete? - seems like a problem with this user account....

(I realise this isn't a SD! fault, but really do appreciate your help!)
