DMD64 2.078.0 on Linux and macOS is taking wildly longer to build
and run unittests for mir-algorithm. The extra time appears to be
related to release mode optimizations.

The above tests all include a non-release build and a release
build. On my mac laptop running DMD 2.078.0, building and running
the mir-algorithm unittests takes 8 seconds normally but takes ~3
minutes 49 seconds with dub options "releaseMode", "optimize",
I don't see any new compiler optimizations in the changelog. Any
idea of what could be causing this?
