Also, could you please try profiling Emacs and reporting the results?
Like this:

  M-x load-file RET simple.el RET
  C-u M-x rmail RET foo2.mail RET
  C-s GNU Emacs
  C-f
  M-x profiler-start RET RET

Now press and hold C-n for 5 seconds, then release C-n and type

  M-x profiler-report RET

In the buffer with the profile, please type "C-u RET" on every line
that has a "+" to its left, to completely expand the profile.  Then
please post the result.

Here's my profile:

This seems to indicate that line-move and line-move-visual take most
of the time.  If you get a similar result, then please try replacing
these 2 functions with their code from May 2013, and see if that makes
the slowdown go away.
