No clues, one of the first places I looked.

Yes, I have used the time command before, thanks.

Thanks, here is a sample with "strace -tt mkdir try", a little
over 15 second delay:
13:35:33.597167 mkdir("try", 0777) = 0
13:35:48.617766 close(1) = 0
13:35:48.617820 exit_group(0) = ?
I am going to move my home volume to another file server
and see if that helps.
