7 hrs for a pg_restore?

I spent a whopping seven hours restoring a database late Fri nite for a 
client. We stopped the application, ran pg_dump -v -Ft -b -o $db > 
~/pre_8.3.tar on the 8.2.x db, and then upgrading the software to 8.3. I then 
did a pg_restore -v -d $db ./pre_8.3.tar and watched it positively crawl.
I'll grant you that it's a 5.1G tar file, but 7 hours seems excessive. 

Is that kind of timeframe 'abnormal' or am I just impatient? :) If the former, 
I can provide whatever you need, just ask for it.

I've been dying to hit something since I pressed "1" to join your conference.
