Another pointer: How many VACUUMs does osm2pgsql trigger during import
and filling the own tables?
I also registered some slowing down with my own application when it
comes to VACUUM. And I also read some mailings about this issue on the
PG-MLs. AFAIR osm2pgsql does not timestamp its steps so it is probably a
little difficult to hunt the real timeconsumer down.
