Yes Micah, it finished while I was checking the computer because of the messages received 
on the mailing list.

It ran from 11:37 to 14:51. It might run faster on x86 computers though.

Pierre,

So you're saying it actually did finish after 3 hours, 15 minutes on its own?  That is good news 
for all of the automated systems, even if this is a potentially terrible bug.

I'm still investigating the cause, and asking our signature management team if they have any 
additional details.

    Here too: it took about 3 hours and 15 minutes to calm down (SPARC, Solaris 11, 
    v0.100.0)... without noticiable error in freshclam.log.
