comment How to fix slow Spotlight and Time Machine after upgrading to 10.7.5?
Yes. I tried the supplemental update on 10.8.2, but it didn't help. The only thing that has worked for me is a complete system wipe and reinstall of the OS. I manually copied my data from another backup, but did not restore any apps or settings.

This did not work for me. In my case, TM hangs after a time. Disabling Spotlight did not help at all.

comment Time Machine backing up slowly
Killing Spotlight is not a solution to any Time Machine problem. Time Machine relies on Spotlight for indexing. If it appears as though it is working, it is incomplete because the indexes will not be updated in the process of backing up your data.

FYI. This may have solved the problem with 10.7.5, but not with 10.8.2.

I'll try that if the backup fails again. It is still working. Says it will take about a day for 393GB.

Okay. I found another commonality (seemingly) to the backup failures. I no longer have the deny mach-lookup com.apple.ls.boxd in the console (although I still get the "mdworker: Unable to talk to lxboxd"). However, I do see a bunch of "sandboxd[1289]: ([1288]) mdworker32(1288) deny mach-lookup com.apple.PowerManagement.control ..." messages. Do I need to add another line for com.apple.PowerManagement.control?

I confirmed that I had those messages in the console log. I followed the instructions as well. No change for me. I deleted the entire TM bundle for my machine and started a new backup. It made it about 200GB through a 600GB backup and stops. I'm running TM on a Mac Mini Server with a Drobo connected via FW800. My source machine is a MacBook Pro Retina running ML 10.8.2. I rebooted both the server and MBP and tried to continue the backup again. This time, it only made it through about 100GB more and then stops. One more try only did 3GB. Something is stopping it, but I don't know what.
