The manage_beforeDelete() and manage_afterAdd() events are propagated to subfolders, meaning that a whole lot of objects have to wake up every time you add or remove something. Or it might be manage_afterClone() being called, which is very similar. You could add a temporary print statement to ObjectManager.manage_after* to see just how often the methods are getting called. The solution? Event management. Make objects register to receive events.
