Do you mean 300 lists * 110,000 messages, or do you mean 110,000
messages total?

Yes, that's about what I'd expect myself. I'm assuming you're
updating alternate files when you talk about an "update dig." Have
you tried blowing away the alternates and reindexing them from
scratch? Basically what I'm saying is to keep your existing databases
in place and generating a new set from scratch. Are they faster? (in
which case there's something wrong with the databases perhaps) Or is
it the same (in which case there's a general slowdown you're seeing

Also, have you set the server_wait_time attribute or anything of that sort?
