In both cases (with and without -Q) renaming the 10 files - moving them
from one directory to a subdirectory - (with both dired buffers
displayed in the frame and using dired-dwim-target set to t to provide
the default target and that's the same as in the slow case) there is no
perceptible difference - both appear to be immediate.

They're both directories within $HOME which is /dev/sdb7 - so both local.
I'd suspect a dodgy disk if it wasn't for the delay vanishing on a
restart - and I've been trying a new emacs session at the same time as
the one which produces the delay - and the new one has no delay.

There's no apparent delay
