Yes, this isn't just you. We think the issue is that Internet search
engines, etc are crawling it, and some of the questions you can ask to
trac take a lot of computation to answer. So it is constantly being bombed
with complex questions, leading it to be bad at answering every request.

Surely there is some sort of trac plugin to defend against pieces of
this issue, but we haven't yet found one that works well.
