I have never seen such times on retrieving ext-list.
it always is done in less than 1 minute execution time.
what other possibilities for such long time?
too less memory and the OS is swapping all the time?
accustic-modem connection?

this would miss the possibility to download older version which might be 
needed because of dependencies to other extensions (unpublished 
individual and in TER), PHP, TYPO3, external interfaces, ...

look at your cache-tables: much more records.
there are installations where much more tt_content or fe_users records 
exists. 36000 is no problem to mysql and 5MB transfer data should not be 
a problem today (otherwise you would not be able to work remote in TYPO3 
BE anyway)
how did you install TYPO3 (smallest package (blankpackage-4.5.8.tar.gz) 
is 19MB)? 2 hours download?

you have a weird configuration (SCNR)
