Most likely you have (several) addons installed?

If so:
There was a bug in g.extension for some weeks which generated multiple
entries in the addons metadata file.
The fastest way to get rid of this issue is

- get list of locally installed addons
- delete $HOME/.grass7/addons
- reinstall the desired addons.

Then speed will be back.
