I am on Arch but didn't upgrade to MySQL 5.5 yet.  And I'm 100% sure
it isn't MySQL, though it was my first suspicion and had to rule that
out.  I did some earlier debugging where I turned on all the
mythfilldatabase debugging.  The database ops between file gets are
fast: it is getting the file that takes forever.  The file gets and
database operations don't overlap either: a slow database operation
wouldn't time out the wget operation.

And I've posted this to the SD support forum, though my message is
sitting in moderation right now.
