Mount Sparseimage - what is happening?

Hi. I backup to an NAS, so that creates a sparseimage. I have SD! set to run every night at 9:30 using smart update. I've noticed that it takes a *really* long time to mount the sparseimage (we're talking 3+ minutes over gigabit lan, and 15+ minutes over wireless). Why is that? What is it doing? According to iStat Pro, it looks like my computer is downloading a butt-load of data. What data does it need? I figure it's not just my computer, because I've tested this using a directly-attached firewire drive and there is essentially no time (though, that's not sparseimage).

It's all working just fine, I'm just curious. Thanks.
