Just a short bit. If "EXPLAIN SELECT" doesn't return, there seems to be a very serious problem. Because I think EXPLAIN doesn't actually run the query, just has the query planner run. And the query planner shouldn't ever get heavily stuck. I might be wrong, but there may be something much more substantially wrong than slow i/o. John =:->
