I mention this in my other email (about gvim, and that a -g exe will

those compiled in debugging symbols never even get used a single time.

Under a normal operating system (i.e. perhaps not Plan 9, I am not sure) the debug symbols are separate from the executable text so that the OS will never read the debug symbol area while it is loading the program. This means that there should be no performance difference.

Perhaps you have a problem with your system or should be using 'vim' rather than 'gvim'?
