As a followup to this, I've noticed that the syslog is around 3-4 minutes
behind the events that happen. say I login to an IMAP server, the maillog
shows the login at 16:57:48 - if I breat out of that and show the date,
the clock will show 3-4 minutes later (ie 17:01) - even though the line
has only appeared seconds ago.

Even things such as spamassassin is taking 217 seconds to scan a 2Kb
email. snmpd results to localhost are timing out - even though the process
is listening.

It takes 45-50 seconds to log out of a su shell back to the logged in
user, the same for becoming root via 'su -'.

I have never seen this kind of behaviour on a system before - especially
when the CPU is 99% idle. Has anyone come across this type of behaviour
before?

the system is:
model name      : AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 2800+
stepping        : 0
cpu MHz         : 1602.495

It has 1 Gb of RAM, and seemed to work perfectly until last nights updates.

have you tryed a different kernel?
And which one are you using while seeing this ?

Can you check /etc/hosts and or post it here; I saw similar things when I accidently removed my machine host name from /etc/hosts ? Or maybe it doesn't have the localhost entry and net stuff is timing out.
ping localhost
ping {machine host name}
ping {gateway}

Second guess, that I have noted with win machines at the office - every now and then win will set the netcard link to 100/Full or alternatively to Auto, when it needs to be the other way (for win to boot properly - depends on net card). This makes everything on the machine run really slowly (opening any app - which tries to reference network printers, because the card then communicates at 10/half, but in short responses - and never gets more than 100 Bytes/sec etc). I have never seen this on Fedora, though.
