I don't know if this is the same thing I saw, but it seems suspiciously like
it. I was running some code which was writing out a lot of files. It was
also taking a long time, about 60x longer than I thought it should take.

In my case, I was writing to a non-local file system, so there was NFS
latency involved in the process.

Another alternative would be to check whether running these tests involves
writing to files (test logs, or anything else) and determine whether GsFile
is writing to the server or to the client. Writing to the client will be
enormously slower than writing to the server.

Let us know. Thanks,
