emacs -Q
C-x C-f /foo:b

On "windows32 home-c4e4a596f7 2.5.1 2600 i786-pc Intel unknown MinGW",
a 3-GHz single-CPU machine, it takes Emacs 7 seconds to echo the `b'
after the colon.  This is with a cold cache; with warm cache, it's
still 2 seconds, which is annoyingly visible.

On "Linux fencepost #1 SMP Wed Dec 6 07:32:36 EST 2006
x86_64 GNU/Linux", a 2-GHz Dual-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2214
machine, the numbers are 4 seconds and 3 seconds, accordingly.

Maybe Tramp is a large package, but then "C-x C-f" is a very
frequently used command.
