Lightroom CC 2015 export is ridiculously slow

As I write this I am trying to export six PSD files from Lightrrom CC 2015.3 (using File setting "export as original").  The PSDs are between 0.5 GB and 1.0 GB.  Twenty minutes have elapsed, yet only four of the six files have been exported so far. I'll finish this post when the export is complete. 

Ah, export finished after 30 minutes.  I should add that I was not doing anything else in Lightroom during the export, just waiting for it to finish.  I have a very fast Windows 7 PC with tons of memory that performs brilliantly in Lightroom, except during export and import.

Your Lightroom isn't up to date. The current version is 2015.5.

Oh, are you saying Adobe fixed the problem in 2015.5?

Well, they didn't.

After upgrading to 2015.5, export is still taking 5 minutes per file.
