I don't see this problem with flyspell (which I use constantly), but I don't 
use gnus, and I rarely edit C code anymore.  Would you be willing to test 
without one of those three (flyspell, gnus, CC-mode) for a short bit?

There are some known issues that make subprocesses slow (usually hits flyspell, 
although it's still usually fast enough in my experience), and there have been 
several discussions about slowness in CC-mode due to unusual cases lately.
