Could you please open bug in bugzilla and add Lionel and Michael into

We will need some more information to locate the problem. The best
solution would be if you attach a test database showing the problem. I
am afraid that you could not provide the original database because it
contains sensitive data. Though, you might try to create another
database with random data that has the same behavior.

Another solution is to follow instructions from Lionel and Michael, and
do some profiling yourself.
