FWIW, on macOS 10.6, evaluating (my-test) the first time takes
~4.7 seconds, then further runs take about 0.01 seconds.  Setting
inhibit-compacting-font-caches to `t' seems to have no effect on
evaluation time in either case.

But I have noticed that displaying files containing certain Unicode
characters can lock Emacs for a little while.  I wonder if that is
also some manifestation of this bug.  Do you also see a slow down when
you visit a file containing the characters in the `char-names'
variable you defined?  Or is the slowness limited to running them
through `char-displayable-p'?
