    Calling PP_evalProperty close to six-and-a-half-million times could have
    something to do with it (understatement of the year? :-) ).

    Also, I fail to see the reason of calling fp_Run::updateHighlightColor over
    two and a half million times just to load such a document. It's not like
    you'd be able to cram that many runs into a 205 page document. That would be
    something like 13052 runs/page!

    I think the design- (or maybe just implementation-) error is at a much
    higher abstraction level, since this definitely isn't the first time we've
    been fighing performance problems while loading. It has AFAIK also (almost)
    always been been exhibited in this way.

    /Mike - please only followup to the list
