AFAttribute.FindElementAttributes() never returns and eventually times out

I've been trying to use the following code to return a list of AF attributes for an AF element, but I always get a timeout error.  The AF element passed to the FindElementAttributes() only has 3 or 4 levels of child AFElements (~ 15 total) and the total number of attributes is relatively low (i.e. less than 200).  I was able to get this method working if I create a new database, but I dont understand why this method would timeout with our production database, especially when I set fullSearchHierarchy to false and have maxCount = 10.

static void Main(string [] args) 

    string path = \\\\PIDEV06\\SPWR\\Sites\\M0010;

        AFElement elem = AFElement.FindObject(path) asAFElement;
        AFDatabase afdb = elem.Database;

        AFNamedCollectionList<AFAttribute> attributes = AFAttribute.FindElementAttributes(afdb, elem, "*", null, null, AFElementType.Any, "*", null, System.TypeCode.Empty, false, AFSortField.Name, AFSortOrder.Ascending, 10);
    catch (Exception ex)
