Follow-up Comment #22, bug #57439 (project octave):

I also see the test suite taking longer on my Debian system but it is not as
bad as Philip reports for Windows.

I see now that canonicalize_file_name has to do a lot of work each time to
check for symbolic links.  I wasn't thinking about that when I made the
change.  I think we do need to store the full file name so we can correctly
reload those handles to private functions.  But maybe we can use the absolute
name instead of the canonical name?  That should be more efficient.  Maybe we
can also reduce the number of calls to make the directory or file name
absolute?  Does the attached change help?

(file #48502)
