I have a very large library if that helps.

system is ubuntu linux 64 bit 12.04
older intel quad core with 8 gigs of ram.

I am always running the latest version of calibre.
I only have 32 bit Ubuntu (none over 2G RAM): The foot print is smaller than on my windows boxes and about half of what you report.
By any chance is the:
metatdata backup still running (right-click Library Icon: backup status)?
Is the Task wheel spinning (scanning a device)?
