[opensuse] Odd speed issues with a clean install of openSUSE 12.2

This is a weird one. This weekend I reinstalled openSUSE 12.2 on my
computer (Zotac GIGA ID70, Intel i3 2600, 4GB RAM, Nvidia 430, 300GB
HD, 120GB SSD). The previous install worked fine, but after all the
fiddling I had done it was messy, and I also wanted to set up dual
boot with Win7.

I partitioned the SSD into 2, and installed Windows on one part (which
works fine). I partitioned the mechanical drive into 2 and formatted
it as NTFS. I installed openSUSE onto the second partition on the SSD
and set up the second partition on the mechanical drive as storage.

Now the problem. Booting openSUSE, which should be very fast is
actually very slow. It boots in spurts. The Plymouth loading
animation is very fast, and then there is a long period 15 seconds or
more of black screen before KDE4.9.2 loads. Loading YAST Software
Installer can take up to 15 or 20 minutes, and installing apps is
equally slow. While loading the Repositories, YAST will sit there
doing next to nothing and than flash, it loads one Repo... then
nothing for a while and so on. Downloading apps during install is the
same. YAST sits there doing nothign and then bam, the RPM is
downloaded at the max for my ISP,... then nothing for a minute or two.

I'm trying to copy a 35 Gig directory from a NAS drive to the openSUSE
storage drive, and it's taking literally days to complete the copy
where it should only take an hour or so (ran the copy for 6 hours and
it only copied over 1.1Gb).

In the messages log I am seeing hundereds and hundreds of repeats of these lines

----------------------------------

This is on a default install with a clean /home (new users created, no
old configs copied over, full update from the oS repos and KDE 4.9.2).
The only new element is addition of the SSD drive.

Any ideas on this? I'm tempted to wipe it all and
reconfigure/reinstall all over again.
