Set Subtype Field Spinning

I am trying to remove subtypes from a number of tables with python. I tested things on fgdb copy of the sde data. Everything worked fine. However, when I run it in our sde dev environment it makes it past the first two tables then just hangs.....


I have also tried it with the ArcCatolog tool on the problem table. It has been running for 25 minutes. 


arcpy.SetSubtypeField_management(table, clear_value='TRUE')

The tables have a large number of subtypes. Some tables have over 260! (someone did not understand how to use subtypes...)


I did remove sde locks before trying to remove them.


Has anyone ever run across this problem?
