I got this problem (triggered from package shared-mime-info) when I upgraded my server to 10.04 back in February (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/shared-mime-info/+bug/59240) and still have it. Upgrading today to 10.04.3 did not help.

Then I did:

strace -o/tmp/strace.txt update-mime-database.real /usr/share/mime

See attached output

Anything else I can provide, let me know.
