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).

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

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.
