I don't think it's a bug.  I think coreutils recently started to try
harder to obtain the information it needs, thus for instance going into
an ldap or NT domain lookup, which just takes an awful amount of time.

We do, and I think, judging from the bugs, that we should try to find
the configure flag that reverts this behaviour and add it so.
