Im running Gentoo on a SMP AMD64, I just installed it from the 2005.1 cd

from emerge pauses and 99.9% CPU is taken via sh.

This can happen at any stage, I have seen it happening while running (ln, rm or 

Reproducible: Sometimes

emerge -dp package, name the portage version used, etc.

This bug doesn't state where this is occuring, phase execution, from
the python env, etc.

bleh, drop the -p; need debug info (via -d) if it's occuring during
execution, if it's occuring outside of it, profiling will be fun.
