Says it all really. I guess its waiting for randomness that simply wont

What kind of machine is it?  I see something similar to this (DSA key takes a
long time to generate) only on a 486 I have; a Dell Precision 420 does it in no
time.  Although I don't know if I trust the entropy available at first boot. ;-)

233Mhz Cyrix

And if it really takes that long anyway then its still a bug. The key generation
needs to be done
in the background
