Already done, as in, prior to my report, or you mean you just made a
fix?  What I mean is that the command line above takes almost 40
seconds, whereas the alternative which uses the symlinks program
instead, takes under 1 second.  That tells me that something is badly
wrong unless you only just added the optimisation you mention above.
