    67I recently happened to go through the effort to build a copy of Darcs with profiling enabled (to profile, obviously), and while the profiling runs were quite as helpful as I could've wished, I've since noticed something very annoying:

And since my system is set up for profiling, it'll only get worse as more and more binaries get built for profiling.
