I doubt it - this commit is not in the range that Eric identified (indirectly
in the filenames, so I'm guessing):

a7afe7d was my initial guess because of the profiles:

org-in-src-block-p                                            813         
0.0134103450  1.649...e-05

org-in-src-block-p                                            813         
28.441751922  0.0349837047

That's a whopping difference for such a simple function.

Abdo Roig-Maranges apparently did a bisect and came to the same conclusion.

A simple profiling exercise with the two versions of the function indicates a 
big difference but
as Abdo indicated as well, not as big as Eric finds:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun org-in-src-block1-p (&optional inside)
  "Whether point is in a code source block.
When INSIDE is non-nil, don't consider we are within a src block
when point is at #+BEGIN_SRC or #+END_SRC."
  (let (ov)
    (or (when (setq ov (overlays-at (point)))
          (memq 'org-block-background
                 (car ov))))
        (and (not inside)
                 (move-beginning-of-line 1)
                 (looking-at ".*#\\+\\(BEGIN\\|END\\)_SRC")))))))

(defun org-in-src-block2-p ()
  "Whether point is in a code source block."
  (let (ov)
    (when (setq ov (overlays-at (point)))
          (memq 'org-block-background
                 (car ov))))))

(defun my-test1 ()
  (let ((n 1000))
    (while (> n 0)
      (setq n (1- n)))))

(defun my-test2 ()
  (let ((n 1000))
    (while (> n 0)
      (setq n (1- n)))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

When executed on a begin_src line, my-test1 is 5x as slow as my-test2
in my setup. Otherwise the factor is about 2.

But Eric gets a factor of 2500 which is a bit of a mystery to me.
There might be additional factors entering in his case.

It's clear however that the regexp slows things down substantially.
BTW, do we really need the regexp to match anything before the
#+BEGIN_SRC, or just white space? If the latter is ok, it should speed
up the regexp matching.
