reinstall system extremely slow

I started an install with "reinstall system" selected on virtualbox a little over 20 min. ago. At least for the past 15 min or so, it seems to still be stuck on the "Saving installed packages" step.
A quick look at /var/log/syslog shows that it *is* making progress, but it's extremely slow. This was a test install for the iso testing before, so I didn't have loads of extra packages installed or anything. Looking at top, I saw it alternating between dpkg-deb and rcu_sched being the busiest processes, each taking 20-30% cpu or so.
