Troubleshooting Time Machine against a Time Capsule is a very slow process. I like to just get a new USB drive and let Time Machine back up there and you can know if the problem is the Mac or the destination. Doing that will help isolate what is causing the delay.

[Unless they release an update, of course] ...
