if you know in which function this happens you could also patch some 
ast_verbose rows into this function to see where it happens.

another thing you could try is using gprof to see which functions waste 
much time. for this you need to compile asterisk like this:
make install

after this you will see a gmon.out file in the directory from where you 
have started asterisk (your home) and then you could use gprof with this 
gmon.out file.

maybe you will find something with this.
