so you're missing about 25 minutes, and maybe 5 minutes is spent post 
processing, so thats 20 minutes spent in the data insertion?

inserting one row at a time?  or in batches?    remeber a database 
server is going to do commits after each transaction, which forces the 
data to be flushed to disk.   4.5 million seperate row transactions, 
yeah, I could see that taking some time, plus add that many network 
round trips, etcetc.   if the db server just has a single SATA disk, 
you're doing 9 million committed writes combined to the two tables?    
20 minutes for 9 million inserts, thats 7500 per second.
