I started noticing this a while ago, I think with the update right around January. It happens on both my desktop and my laptop which have similar gentoo installs.

The right click menu takes like two seconds to display. It used to be instantaneous. If you put a menu item in the panel it'll start instantaneously like before but if you right click the desktop it's kind of laggy.

Desktop Settings -> Menu -> Show icons (disable) -> No lag.

It could be the icon theme you're using. For examaple, I like the Shining Reprise icon set, but it causes the lag you described whether you have icons in menus or not. Switching to a different icon set fixes it for me.

I think the issue is, the Shining Reprise set uses .svg while the rest use .png. So if your current icon set uses .svg, that might be it.
