syslogd and bzip2 hogs after 6.3 to 7.0 upgrade

I've caught bzip2 misbehaving. The following "top" output is for 
compression of /var/log/messages (just over 100kB size) and it's not 
finished yet:

21172 root             1 118    0 11360K  8248K RUN     11:02 100.00% bzip2

Over 11 minutes, and still going, at 100% CPU. Now that's definitely not 
right. Anyone else seeing this?
