getFeatureInfo slow with large map files

just checking if anybody experienced the same problem:
A very large map file with > 100 layers and > 100 classes per layer
works fine when requesting maps.
But getFetureInfo-requests on one single layer always take 10 seconds or
more to get answered. First we suspected poor tuning in PostGIS (join
over three tables) but no - even with a flat table its the same thing.
To confirm this behaviour we extracted this queryable layer and put it
into a separate WMS, performance is immediately fine. So we have a
workaround but Nonetheless we wonder what causes this behaviour and
where else it might steal us a second or two.
