This is a known issue for which there is no optimum solution other
than placing the journal in an SSD drive.

The time it takes to search in the journal depends on the
fragmentation of the files, the filesystem..etc.. it is even suspected
there is a kernel bug that contributes to this, but such bug so far
has not been isolated. (afaik greg KH tried with no luck)

Okay, thanks everyone. I don't have a spare disk-slot on this system
nor the time to experiment with this, so I'll just have to live with
it :-)

Not to mention the minimum price for an SSD drive (SAS, 24/7) seem to be
about CHF700, and all models unavailable at my supplier :-(
