I just did, with the current emacs-25 branch.

The same search, immediately repeated from the same directory.  More
accurately, the first time I invoke xref-find-references in the
top-level directory of the Emacs repository, I get 980 matches;
thereafter, all the subsequent searches from the same Emacs session
yield 1128 matches.  This is with the ID database present in the
top-level directory.

All the searches are done from *scratch* in "emacs -Q".

Let me know if I can provide more info.
