load levels shown by uptime easily go up to 60 for 10 minutes. I have not straced the shell, but that would of course help to determine when the command finished and what ev. happens afterwards.

I mean it literally takes minutes to print the prompt. The actual command has finished executing (e.g. a cat printed the last line). Is this then the context switch before the shell gets to run again? That would be surprising.
