Admin panel takes minutes, after new DB import and deleting contents of var directory

Hi There,

I moved a magento installation from test system to live system.
First everything went well, but after a new database was imported,
it got absolutely slow and frontend and backend-login-page took
long to load (>30 s)(magento shoplogin extension is enabled).
I removed the contents of directory var and reduced running apaches
from 100 to 30. The login pages came up quicker, but login into the
admin panel now takes always about 3 minutes an ten seconds.
I figured out with firebug, that there is an initial post-request, which
takes about less than a second and a get-Request,that takes about a second.
The following get-Request takes about 3 minutes and 10 seconds to process.
I checked the php-timeouts, but didn’t find anything, that takes 190 seconds.
It’s very urgent, the server should be up tomorrow.

The problematic get-Request looks like that:
