New submission from Steve Clift <Steve.Clift at L-3Com.com>:

I'm seeing a strange performance regression with 1.8/1.9. The Python program 
does a lot of bit fiddling, unpacking inconveniently formatted binary data from 
a file. Timing, using Ubuntu 8.04 on a Dell Latitude E6400:

python-2.5.2:                              6.7 secs
pypy-1.7:                                  1.7
pypy-1.9:                                 13.0 (same with 1.8 IIRC)
pypy-1.9 --jit off:                        9.0
pypy-1.9 running program through cProfile: 7.0!

Has anyone else seen anything like this, or do I need to explore further to try 
to isolate the problem?
