Okay, it is catching back up on recovering a bunch of versions since
last March and code loading would be in competition with that.  I
might have to consider a different design yet.  But it should clear up
pretty soon, although it looks like it's currently doing VMMaker which
are large Version objects.  I *thought* I was only indexing the
Versions in 'trunk', but now I can't find where I restricted that.

I'll keep my eye on it.  Thanks for your patience.  Let me know if it
gets too broken, I can always turn off the indexing again.
