This.  I'm on Windows 10 and I just rebooted the machine and it went
through a 45m patch update and now Emacs behaves correctly.  I've got
the startup back to 4 to 7 secs.  Not tracked it down to antivirus
issue though.

Apparently, patches are downloaded and applied without any user
notifications; so the sudden slowness is disconcerting when you know
the changes you made were trivial and should not affect in any way.

tldr: the infamous reboot and it goes away worked.

Apologies for the noise.
