[Rubygems-developers] Slow install with specific versions numbers

I'm finding that some gems are taking forever to install today, in
particular it seems that when I specify a particular version number

gem install webrat --version "= 1.2.16'
gem install -v1.2.3 test-unit

There is a looooong pause before any output.

Might this have something to do with the move/forwarding to gemcutter?
 And btw http://gemcutter.org is first on my list of sources.
