[notmuch] emacs mode performance issue

I'm in the search results window in Emacs, on an LKML thread with 140+
messages. I hit return to view this thread - Emacs consumes 100% CPU
but even after waiting 3 minutes it doesn't display the result (this is
on a fast system Lenovo x200s). 

C-g stops the process and gets me dumped into a clearly partially
processed buffer.

Is there a good way to collect more profiling information to figure out
why this is so slow?
