gpg 1.06 extremly slow
Wed Nov 7 12:10:01 2001
As soon as I invoke gpg --edit, its unbelievable slow. It uses 100%
CPU for several minutes until it turns oup the prompt. Nearly every
action taken after that also takes this long. Happens on different
machines. pubkey contains 174 keys.

Here's what time says, time from starting to prompt and quit.
I mean that IS real slow.
strace turns up thousands of these:
_llseek(6, 50520, , SEEK_SET) = 0
read(6, "\4\0\0\0\0\201\0\0\4\362\0\0\0\0\0\0\4\361\3\0a\177L\373"..., 40) = 40
Some 1536020 times..
Answers please by pm, since I don't read the mailinglist.
