It does seem like a race condition.  I also had this suspicion after
getting surprising and seemingly conflicting gdb backtraces that Eli
asked for.

Perhaps further evidence in this direction comes from two new
observations I have made: there is no delay when visiting a PDF file via
bookmark-jump or when opening a PDF attachment in Gnus.  I tried
stepping through the respective functions called in these cases
(pdf-view-bookmark-jump-handler and mm-display-external) but didn't see
why the behavior differs, which again suggests it's in redisplay.
