The issue can be reproduced by comparing two different official images 
from https://nixos.org/nixos/download.html, e.g. x86_64 and i686.

It takes over 1h to compare those 337M ISOs. I guess that minimal case 
would be non-writeable file in non-writeable directory in squashfs in 
ISO image. Neither tar nor squashfs alone triggered the issue (i.e. 
without ISO image).
