Delay in approving renunciations at State Department?

I get emails:

Have you noticed that the US State Dept is taking a very long time to approve renunciations? I have been waiting 9 months. Someone from the embassy where I renounced went to DC a couple of months ago for a training and asked them why it was taking so long. They said it was the job of only one person and that it was not a priority. I think they are doing this to punish the renouncers. What do you think?

Anyone out there have any clue? I have not seen any undue delay in issuing CLNs.
