After doing some Sage development, I ran doctests and 2 GAP tests failed. The reason:

sage: from import *
Exiting Sage (CPU time 1m58.64s, Wall time 2m36.84s).

This is almost 2 minutes of CPU time (so it cannot be blamed on I/O) in a Sage session just doing this. This is a backtrace when I interrupted the command earlier:

/usr/local/src/sage-git/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/libs/gap/ in <module>()
--> 141 FUNCTIONS = load_or_compute('functions', list_functions)

/usr/local/src/sage-git/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/libs/gap/ in load_or_compute(name, function)
     65             return cPickle.load(f)
     66     else:
---> 67         value = function()
     68         from sage.misc.temporary_file import atomic_write
     69         with atomic_write(filename) as f:

/usr/local/src/sage-git/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/libs/gap/ in list_functions()
    135     """
    136     fnames = set(GLOBALS).difference(KEYWORDS)
--> 137     documented = Filtered(list(fnames), IsDocumentedWord)
    138     return tuple(sorted(documented.sage()))

/usr/local/src/sage-git/src/sage/libs/gap/element.pyx in (build/cythonized/sage/libs/gap/element.c:15720)()
   2006         try:
   2007             libgap_enter()
-> 2008             sig_on()
   2009             if n == 0:
   2010                 result = libGAP_CALL_0ARGS(self.value)

Any ideas what was happening here?
