Was the debugging just a printf before and after those calls or is there
some more info about where the time is exactly spent?

Just a hunch, but might this be the "nonexistent floppy drive" problem
that a few people on the web have mentioned, I can right now only

In any case, the fact that both gtk2 and gtk3 are affected makes it kind
of unrealistic that a change in gtk+ is at fault and without more info
it's hard to say what exactly the problem is.
