Was running version 0.5.1-beta. Tried deleting everything but wallet.dat out of ~/.bitcoin/testnet and restarting with bitcoin-qt -testnet -rescan, but the problem persisted. Updated to 0.5.2 but the problem persisted. Deleted everything again but now the block chain is downloading very slowly, so I don't have logs around the time of stopping.

Any ideas?

Here's what I'm seeing downloading the block chain now (each of these are SetBestChain calls, parsed through awk).

Code:

Every 500 blocks it stops getting anything for a few minutes and I see a lot of this in the log.

Code:

The testnet rules were changed in 0.6.0; try updating to git head or 0.6.0rc2 if you want to experiment with testnet.
