emacs slow on dired renaming

I have a build of emacs from the bzr trunk (of last week) for which
dired renaming of files is very slow. It takes around 60 seconds to move
16 files to a subdirectory of their current location (within the same
filesystem). The delay is spread across the files so each rename appears
to take the same (c 5 seconds) time.

I've not yet managed to construct a minimal test case for this - if I
start -Q or with my .emacs - without loading desktop the same rename
runs virtually instantaneously.

I am seeing a similar slowness in VM (the mail reader) which I suspect is
related - here the problem gets worse the longer the emacs session is
left running - so if it is the same problem as above maybe that's why a
simple with -Q doesn't show the problem?

I'm not placing it is a bug report yet as this is rather vague but in
case anyone has any helpful thoughts or is also seeing this issue?
