I'm still puzzled by this 12 min ... so less than one page per second 
... do you need to process all that data each run? It's over a decade

check. Is there some memory build up (swapping)? Is the speed linear?


Will show the time spend per page.

I'll add a \showusage commands that reports some stats per page so that 
you can see what grows out of control.
