@Julien, any change you could get a perf graph here?
Comment 5 Julien Nabet 2021-12-13 20:36:55 UTC
Created attachment 176917 [details]

On pc Debian x86-64 with gen rendering + --enable-symbols I don't reproduce this.
It takes about 5 seconds on a Ryzen 2600 + 32GB

Remark: it's a brand new LO profile, so no experimental features enabled.
