As a side note it "feels" like any communication to the backend is  
mired in molasses these days.  Both Mythweb and my ION frontend seem  
really slow.  I was wondering if there are some clunky lock issues but  
I have no idea how to start looking into it.  Any tips?

I've kinda discounted the ION frontend slowness because I'm also  
running it completely on a USB key (home directory and /var/log and  
all) so "disk" writes SHOULD be crazy slow.  But Mythweb "feels" the  
same.  I'm planning on switching the frontend to PXE boot instead and  
then looking closer at it.
