High CPU utilization on BEREMOTE.EXE while Updating Catalogs

Created: 08 May 2008 • Updated: 02 Mar 2009

We perform backups to disk, then copy the jobs to tape.  After the duplicate job is done writing to tape, the status shows "updating catalogs", BEREMOTE.EXE will sit at or about 97%.
It does eventually finish, but may take a couple of hours, depending on the job.
The jobs are backing up files, shadow copy & system state (not exchange or sql backups).
 
This is a clean install, not an upgrade.
v12.0 rev 1364, hotfixes 300287, 300290, 300699 are applied.
I see that there is a newly released SP1, but I haven't applied it yet, but don't see anything specific in the release notes that relate to my issue.
 
Thanks.
