A bunch of commits along the direction of eliminating what we thought
was the main cause of the slowdown have just concluded.  If you could
grab the current CVS version (or alternative a snapshot tarball from the
FTP, but make sure it contains my commit as of 5 minutes ago) and try
your test case with it, it would be great.
