Eclipse maven hangs updating indexes

For more information about this new view, see Browsing and Manipulating Maven Repositories in Edition 0.6 of Developing with Eclipse and Maven.

Read on to find out how to open this view in m2eclipse.

This folder contains the Central Maven repository under the repository identifier of "central".

I wanted to add a few plugins to it, so I tried to use the UI to check for new updates and install some new packages.

I let it run for a while, and after about 45 minutes, it looked to be about 20% done.

iostat shows it takes up to 80% of IO and CPU bandwidth and brining performance of my machine to its knees.

Every time I open my eclipse it takes forever to update the Maven repo indexes.
