I recently reported a performance degrading on with gwTeX/ConTeXt under MacOS X
after upgrading to the most recent gwTeX. I upgraded two other machines and did some further
tests. For each run, I renamed the TeX source file, and performed 3 runs:

i) old TeX
ii) new TeX, 1st run
iii) new TeX 2nd run (still with a new filename)

While ii takes about 10% longer, iii was consistently about as fast as i.
My guess is that some of the files in the new TeX installation (I moved to TeXLive 2005) need
to be 'broken in' so that subsequent runs of TeX should be faster.

At least it looks as if TeX didn't really slow down after upgrading as I first thought.
