mounting /usr on new partition causing poor performance


I recently moved my /usr to a seperate partition on a different hard drive, now i am experiencing VERY slow performance.
Initially i thought it was because the new partition was Ext2 while the rest was Ext3 but after upgrading it with tune2fs the performance didnt improve.

Can anyone help?

the line:

svc: bad direction 268435456, dropping request

appears in dmesg about 60 times in a row...what does it mean?
it also pops up pretty regularly when i'm logged in as well
