Default Refine mesh with field function

Alberto Damas is on a distinguished road
I'm trying to refine a polyhedral mesh with field function using the gradient velocity magnitude. No matter how I do the refinment, it takes hours "getting candidate vertices", even setting 1.2*Volume (the number of cells should remain approximately the same). Decreasing the initial number of cells doesn't help, it takes hours too.

I wanted to test with a trimmed mesh and it just takes a few minutes with a similar inicial number of cells, even with millions of cells (with polyhedral there was just 100k). Is this usual or might I be doing something wrong? Any idea?
