It is related to that bug only if you have a lot of dead buffers.  The
URL pointed out by Noam includes a patch that would allow you to count
dead buffers you have; can you do that?

None of the above, AFAIU.  Gnus was fixed to not hit this problem.

In a session that has 291 buffers, I get 2.8 microseconds, whereas in
fresh "emacs -Q", I get 1.5 microseconds.  This is 3 orders of
magnitude faster than what you get, and the difference between a large
session and a new one is much smaller.

IOW, there's some factor here that is not just the number of buffers
you have, I think.
