It appears to be stating every single message in every user underneath the default domain's directory(!). Given that there is about 12 GB of mail that's being transferred over in the test systems (before we go live), that would explain the long delay. As it gets cached by NFS or the local disk array, the time the stats take vary.
Maybe domain quotas were turned on, and it's trying to see how much space is used?
