Removing all but a few users from the master password file will eliminate
the extreme slowdown in ls -l response time which would suggest it is
related to uid to name resolution.
This is an extremely annoying issue and it is beyond belief that few if
any people haven't escalated this bug to a high level.
I have access to two FreeBSD 6.2 stable machines that have this problem.
If anyone has a solution, fix or workaround, please share.
