~/.recently-usedXML file corruption bug in OO.o - horay for Kelli actually filing the bug.
time acroread -toPostScript /demo/a.pdf /tmp/a.psa couple of times then do
echo "3" > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches, look for the amazing vanishing time:
time acroread -toPostScript /demo/a.pdf /tmp/a.ps: 1st time: 2nd time: real 0m32.221s 0m1.586s user 0m1.684s 0m1.108s sys 0m1.080s 0m0.464sexplaining the gap between 2.6 seconds and 32 seconds is (perhaps) the idea of reading every font on the system, twice (in 2 separate passes) - the strace -ttt shows 32 seconds for that. Gratifying to see that other people have sillier problems than OO.o, will try to poke them: surely .pcf.gz fonts aren't worth playing with anymore(?).
