I saw the same behaviour on a daily updated Sid system.
(Sorry, I don't remember any version numbers, now.)
I "fixed" it by killing the scrollkeeper-update process.

Maybe this is caused by scrollkeeper's habit of attempting
internet connections to download DTDs (compare bug #148220)?
You could try "lsof -i" to see whether scrollkeeper is
trying to download something.
