 I have big problem with Macports and OS X 10.7
 if start port -d selfupdate command OS dock freez and it does not answer.
 Activity Monitor shows 100 - 260 % CPU load (4 core CPU).
 If kill dock process, it restart with CPU load > 300%.
 After the reloading OS CPU load > 300% (Leon thanks)

 Solution for this problem:

 cd $HOME/Library/Application Support/Dock
 rm -rf *.db
 killall Dock

 and newer to start port selfupdate

 it is extended on:

 macports 2.0.3 & last svn version

 osx =>10.7

 I did not observe this problem on 10.6
