newfs "hangs" for almost 30 minute delay!

Solaris 10 11/06 on an Ultra 60 with 2x360Mhz cpus, pretty much a server install, not running much of anything yet.

Tried to newfs a 4GB 10k rpm disk on the same bus as the boot drive, which is the same kind of disk. Newfs just hangs, and takes about 30 minutes to finish (date; newfs /dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s0;date -- I answered "y" to the prompt from newfs right away) .

There happens to be a ZFS raidz volumn on drives on the other SCSI bus, not doing anything. Network interface is "down", it's not plugged in to anything.

Anyone have any clues why this should be? Bad enough the bid delays in the format command after selecting a disk, but this is ridiculous!
