  Unpacking linux-headers unbelievably slow in Lubuntu Precise (Beta 1)

Status in “dpkg” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The below is an example line in an apt-get dist-upgrade which seems to
  take 30 minutes or more on a 2.1GHz CPU (one core of a quad core

  Unpacking linux-headers-3.2.0-18 (from .../linux-

  Can anyone explain this, or is it a bug in the configuration of
  Lubuntu, Apt-get or something. I read that there was a similarly
