Thanks, this really seems to be the "consolidation": I can see the effect of chainging editor_consolidate_delay.

Just now I was in the middle of a theory (without any 'end' command), where every (are they supposed to happen periodically?) "consolidation" took about 4 seconds.

It seems like something is accumulating somewhere when editing the document, because after invalidating the beginning of the theory and going back to the same place as before, the "consolidation" was not noticeable any more.
