I run a local dovecot imap server here, and even with my big emacs-devel
group (16.000+ messages) checking for new messages finishes instantly.

Are you sure that the slowness comes from Gnus and not Courier?  Maybe
test with another client.

If the problem is Gnus, then set imap-debug, imap-log, and nnimap-debug
to t and look in the log/debug buffers what Gnus is doing all the time.
