Have you tracked this one down to a specific operation?
Basic operations seems reasonably fast. The slowest part is opening a
folder (group). Once I have the summary displayed, everything works
fine. But some of my mail folders are large, so I expect it to be slow
to generate the summary. However, some some newsgroups (comp.lang.lisp)
with only 25 (?) messages per day take a minute or more to open. I
don't know if this is because of the nntp server, but other newsgroups
with many more messages open fairly quickly. I don't know what makes
comp.lang.lisp so special.
I no longer remember the exact details of when this happened. It was
definitely an update to a new beta, but I probably also grabbed a new
sumo tarball, so it could have been an gnus update that caused the slowness.
