I second this. I have the exact same problem on some of my setups.
Reverting to 3.0.7-1 also fixes it for me. Without reverting i get
stuck in processes all the time (especially with make -jx). Also the
slowdown seems apparent here, even though that is not my biggest
concern ATM, but hanging build servers are :-).

My guess would also be the fork changes, even though i have zero proof
so far. Have not had time to debug.
