Choking on Apple’s Time Capsule

So, the first Time Capsule backup over Gigabit Ethernet took about 8 hours to backup an 80 Gb drive. So, the 160Gb drive should take 16 hours? So far it’s  been over 24 hours and we’re stuck at 132.07 of 145.81Gb (There are 2,007,881 files to back up!),  and not  moving. The weird thing is that MenuMeters shows around 600KB/s of outgoing traffic, presumably to the Time Capsule as everything else  has  been quit. At that transfer rate I’m estimating 8 hours left (time for  bed!), but it’s hard to tell as the progress bar doesn’t seem to be moving. Edit- Something like 32-36 hours all up I think.
