Ok - then please leave it at 32.

If you want me to help you, please help me get good info.

It's very important to me _know_ wether this is a boot slowdown or
a generic - assertions are not good enough, I need hard facts.

My own laptop (A Toshiba Libretto 110CT) does a make world in
about 8 hours (and it always has). Interrupt harvesting has not
made a noticable difference (I have not been keeping records, but
an overnight build has not yet progressed into my breakfast).
