You are right, sorry.  (I wasn't wrong, either: recenter does call the
same find_defun_start around EOB, which is what I saw.  But those
calls are very few and aren't responsible for the slowdown.  I also
wasn't wrong about point being at EOB, see below.  But I described
what happens incorrectly.)

Here's what I see in the debugger:

After beginning-of-buffer jumps to point-min, redisplay kicks in.
Since scroll-conservatively is set to a large value, redisplay first
tries to see whether it can bring point into view by scrolling the
window as little as possible.  It calls try_scrolling, which at some
point (around line 15000) tries to see whether the new location of
point is close enough to the current window start.  It does so by
calling move_it_to, which simulates the display.  While doing so,
move_it_to hits a portion of text with font-lock properties, and calls
JIT Lock to fontify them.

And here's where things go awry: For some reason, the CC Mode
fontification code decides it needs to scan the buffer backwards,
starting from EOB.  So it goes temporarily to EOB (this is why I saw
point being there), and scans all the way back, I think in this loop
from c-append-lower-brace-pair-to-state-cache, which is called with
its first argument FROM set to EOB:

          ;; In the next pair of nested loops, the inner one moves back past a
          ;; pair of (mis-)matching parens or brackets; the outer one moves
          ;; back over a sequence of unmatched close brace/paren/bracket each
          ;; time round.
          (while
              (progn
                (c-safe
                  (while
                      (and (setq ce (scan-lists bra -1 -1)) ; back past )/]/}; 
might signal
                           (setq bra (scan-lists ce -1 1)) ; back past (/[/{; 
might signal
                           (or (> bra here) ;(> ce here)
                               (and
                                (< ce here)
                                (or (not (eq (char-after bra) ?\{))
                                    (and (goto-char bra)
                                         (c-beginning-of-macro)
                                         (< (point) macro-start-or-from))))))))
                (and ce (< ce bra)))
            (setq bra ce))      ; If we just backed over an unbalanced closing
                                        ; brace, ignore it.

This loop takes a lot of time, of course, and is a waste of time,
since eventually try_scrolling comes to the correct conclusion that
scrolling is impossible, and instead recenters at BOB.

Why does CC Mode decide to go from EOB backwards, I don't know;
presumably, this is decided by c-parse-state-get-strategy as part of
c-parse-state-1.

For the record, below is the full C and Lisp backtrace I obtained when
c-append-lower-brace-pair-to-state-cache jumps to the EOB, which in
Lisp happens here:

  (save-excursion
    (save-restriction
      (let* (new-cons
             (cache-pos (c-state-cache-top-lparen)) ; might be nil.
             (macro-start-or-from
              (progn (goto-char from)  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
                     (c-beginning-of-macro)
                     (point)))
             (bra                       ; Position of "{".
              ;; Don't start scanning in the middle of a CPP construct unless
              ;; it contains HERE - these constructs, in Emacs, are "commented
              ;; out" with category properties.
              (if (eq (c-get-char-property macro-start-or-from 'category)
                        'c-cpp-delimiter)
                    macro-start-or-from
                  from))
             ce)                        ; Position of "}"

I hope this information will allow Alan to find the culprit and solve
the problem.
