How long to "Delete Account"?

I'm handing off a MacBook Pro (2011 vintage), and doing a complete deletion of my account. The deletion has been running for about 30 minutes now.
How long might the entire process take?

A long time depending on what is in the account, the speed of the hard drive and the degree of fragmentation of the files being deleted.

It might take one second... might take a few hours

Half an hour seems like a long time... do you have hundreds of thousands of small files in thousands of folders?
