I guess you either have an ElGamal signing key in your keyring or a large keyring. gpg needs to rebuild its view of the Web of Trust at certain times and that may take quite long. You can avoid this by adding "no-auto-check-trustdb" to gpg.conf and run a nightly cron job of "gpg --batch --check-trustdb".
