Is that for the same input?  How come command-execute was called 2464
times in the first profile, and only 303 times in the second?  This
alone can explain an 8-fold slowdown.

Sorry if this is a silly question: I don't use Gnus.  But to compare 2
profiles, you need to create each one of them when Emacs does the same
job in each time.  Otherwise, there's a factor at work that we cannot
glean from the profile alone.

Anyway, looks like gnus-summary-read-group-1 takes a lot of CPU in
both cases, which is above the mapcar part.  Below mapcar, the most
expensive part is parse-time-string, which doesn't really surprise me.
