    What firmware are you on? 2.0 has big problems with backups and hangs for ages - upgrade to 2.1 or 2.2 asap if you are... if you are on 2.1 or 2.2 firmware already and a lot of apps needed to be synched back with iTunes (i.e. you downloaded them direct to your iPod Touch using the AppStore application on the springboard) then this would be a reason for a one-off long increase in back-up time.
