Bug? Extremely slow loading of initrd if it has more than 4 extents on ext2

I have a problem with booting openSUSE 12.3 from an ext2 filesystem
using GRUB 0.97 as follows:
If the initrd file uses **more than 4** extents on the ext2 filesystem,
loading it takes "forever" on a recent Core2Duo system (i.e. up to ~60
seconds). That is, grub prints:
<flashing cursor for a long time, i.e. up to 60 seconds>
and then continues booting normally.
If the initrd file takes **4 or less** extents on the ext2 filesystem,
the initrd is loaded in "no time" (i.e. faster than the eye can see).
I originally reported the problem here:
Is this a known problem with the grub ext2 driver?
