I instrumented those packages (along with next-line and previous-line)
and turned off flyspell. Unfortunately, it seems there is something else
involved, as previous-line is the only function registered by
elp-results:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
previous-line   1           2.524475      2.524475
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This time, moving forward was faster than moving backward. The slowness
occurred when moving back from "* Other" to "* Development Tasks" in the
folded org-issues.org buffer. The movement jumped over a region
containing 4000 lines.

Since nothing from org or outline showed up in the results, I
instrumented the various functions called by previous-line. The culprit
seems to be a function written in C: vertical-motion. So this seems to
be an Emacs issue, rather than an org or outline issue.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
previous-line           1           2.5365349999  2.5365349999
line-move               1           2.536489      2.536489
line-move-visual        1           2.536436      2.536436
