Yes, it's boring indeed.  I've created a less boring test file now.
It only works with pdflatex.  If you want to use it with luatex, you
have to replace the two lines marked with %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% by the
luatex equivalents for \pdfresettimer and \pdfelapsedtime.

It takes 35 seconds to create the ten plots here.

BTW, I tried the old test file with luatex snapshot-0.25.4-2008081309
(TL-2008) and I had not the impression that it slows down.  But the
new test file will demonstrate the problem much faster.

Regards,
  Reinhard

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
