It happens in intermediary stages of work. I stumbled upon the problem when I started engraving a new piece by setting up this:

global = {
  \time 3/8
  \key f \major
  s4.*438
  \bar "||"
  \time 2/2
  \set Timing.currentBarNumber = 1
  s1*170
  \bar "|."
}

and then combining it with the first couple bars of music, to be surprised by the extraordinarily long compile time. So I don’t think it’s a contrived example, and since I do think this is a useful workflow, it would certainly help to make LilyPond compile this faster.

Best, Simon
PS. Bonus points for guessing the piece ;-)
