Aha, cool!

Really? You have that many articles? Just generating a
summary shouldn't be that expensive, I think.

I don't know, I never did this and besides I never have
that many articles to make a summary of, anyway. (Those
may be connected, of course.) The only thing I can think
of is this line

(setq gnus-summary-line-format "%U %3{%I%a%} %1{%s%}\n")

in your init file. Use C-h v on that variable to find
out what you have, and what those characters mean. One
would suspect a less complicated summary is faster to
generate, but even that is a longshot because I think
even a "complicated" summary should be fast to generate
on modern computers.

Yes! And you may report back even if it doesn't... :)
