## Long compile times with many empty bars

 From: Simon Albrecht Subject: Long compile times with many empty bars Date: Sat, 7 Apr 2018 00:48:33 +0200

```Hello everybody,

```
I was a bit surprised that this snippet took so long to compile, and the time increases somewhat exponentially with the number of bars:
```
%%%%%%%%%
\version "2.19.80"
{
\time 3/8
s4.*500
}
%%%%%%%%%

The compile times on my machine were:
for 100 bars: 1.5"
*200:   10.0"
*300:   40.9"
*400: 1'49"
*500: 2'50"

Does that maybe warrant raising an issue?

Best, Simon
