Fetch as Googlebot Delays?

Used to be almost instant, now taking a bit of time?

Anytime I used to use the "Fetch as Googlebot" feature in GWT's... i could refresh and see the results within 1-2 minutes.

I have been testing various reasons as to why new pages don't seem to be indexed right away and see that the fetch tool is taking a bit more time to work.

Is this just me, or it is for others too?

Up until today: Fetch as Googlebot in GWT was almost Instant.
Today: Fetch as Googlebot is currently Pending, at + 45 minutes and counting.

Anyone else?

Update: Fetch recorded roughly an hour later.

Just revisited a few other well established websites, and fetch as was instant.

On the site above, which is fairly new (-2 months old) the fetch-as is still pending.
