I just checked in a fix for this.  There was a memory leak that was
resulting in hundreds or thousands of MIME caches being created, and
this was causing the slowdown.  It was never fixed upstream but was
fixed in the GTK+ copy of the xdgmime code, so we are now pulling from
there and consider it to be the canonical copy.
