the output of your profiler run doesn't ring a bell, but a few years ago
I had the problem that after some uptime (my Emacs uptime is typical
several days, up to a few weeks) Org operations like building the agenda
became sloooow. Restarting Emacs fixed that, until the problem occurred
again after some time.
If I remember correctly I asked the list for advise. But it looked like
one of these problems only I have ;). Maybe some other lisp package had
its hands in the game, I don't know. Eventually, after some Emacs, Org
and other updates the problem was gone.
As I said, I don't think, you suffer from the same problem. But you said
you don't use the newest software versions, so just in case.
