I mentioned this in a post I just sent out, so I'll just recap real
quick here: Erase (when working) takes about 2 hours.  This erase had
been going for over 7.

I should probably also have mentioned that the problem is intermittent. 
Sometimes the erase performs just fine.

Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't.
