Did the lag happen every time you opened the Activities Overview or
just the first time? Even in GNOME 2, the first time the menu is
displayed seems to take a few seconds in many cases.

Also, it might be worth trying after you've disabled all the GNOME
Shell extensions (and reloaded GNOME Shell) to make sure it's actually
a GNOME Shell problem.
