it looks like the alerts take a long time to run for some reason. Obviously,
this shouldn't happen. Could you try it with the '--debug' option, that should
give some more information. (If you can't reproduce the problem with '--debug',
try '--debug-daemon' and look at the syslog.)

Have you tried running with just one of the alerts enabled at a time? That would
tell us if it's just one of the alerts or any of them that causes the problem.
