Commenting out the

("\e[>" . xterm--version-handler)

makes it fast again.
Otherwise the slowness seems to be at this part:

(while (and (< i (length (car handler)))
     (let ((evt (read-event nil nil 2)))

When handler == ("\e[>" . xterm--version-handler), i = 0, read-event
takes 2 seconds to return nil.

Not informative:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (quit)
  xterm--query("^[[>0c" (("^[[?" . xterm--version-handler) ("^[[>" . 
  tty-run-terminal-initialization(#<frame F1 0xb8cbc0>)

Mine is some ancient [1] self-compiled version on RHEL6.

[1] Hah, I just checked: installed 6.5 years ago.
