Follow-up Comment #27, bug #57439 (project octave):

Running the tests on my Debian system also still works, but it is a little
slower after the changeset that I checked in to fix this bug.

I agree that the test suite performance is not critical.  A change like the
one I made might cause a significant change in performance for the tests
because they parse most if not nearly all .m files.  Another big time sink in
the test is running makeinfo to generate usage messages.

The real question is whether the change I made affects real usage.  Philip,
are you noticing a general problem with performance, or is it just the test
suite?  If it is a general problem, can you provide some example code that
demonstrates the performance issue?  Also, are there directories in your
Octave load-path that are on network drives?  I think that could be a
significant problem, at least with the patch that uses canonicalize_file_name.
