Why does the building take a long time in that case?

What penalty is that?

I'd appreciate some more details on that.  It's hard to make up your
mind about the usage patterns with so many new factors being
introduced in ever sentence without any explanations.  (And yes, I did
read the Bazaar User Reference for these two commands, but it's just
awful: "bzr shelve" does not describe its argument FILE, "bzr switch"
does not tell what is its argument TO_LOCATION, etc.  The User Guide
helps a bit, but you cannot search in it, at least not in the on-line
