I just ran fsck and found out that hda1(where /tmp/ is on) is 5.1%
non-contiguous.  Is that enough for the slowdown?  Below is df -h.

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1             387M  156M  212M  43% /
/dev/hda2             3.4G  2.1G  1.1G  65% /home
/dev/hda3              10G  6.4G  3.3G  66% /usr
