Slow routing display

I'm a relative newbie to Linux routing and am setting up a firewall box with
ipchains. I upgraded my RedHat 5.1 (2.0.35) to 2.1.136 to be able to use
ipchains. It mainly works, but when I type either ipchains -L or route (to
display the route table) it can take like 15 minutes for the output to hit the
screen. I have less that 20 routes and only 5 chains with about 20 rules right
now. Does this ring a bell for anyone?
