It is a bit hard to say with the information you have
provided (time says little), but check your database
configuration(s).  mfdb will perform a lot of database
operations and a poorly tuned database can result
in slow operations.  Depending on how you installed
(or upgraded) to 0.28, the configurations may have
changed between releases.  There are some tuning
tips on the wiki.

Alternatively, you likely need to provide a link to
the verbose logging from manually running mfdb
to let people look at the logs.
