I'm late on the fix for fdo#53281 (*biiig* performance problem in Base
created by the fix to fdo#47520).. Worked on it during HackFest, but
did not finish :-(
One can see it as a bugfix, but "big" changes that may create a
cascade of bugs :-| FWIIW, I wouldn't want to backport this to 3.6.
According to my early testing of reverting the fix to fdo#47520,
fixing this one will make fdo#51976 moot. fdo#51976 is a ~20% slowdown
in HSQLDB, we can live with that (especially since the alternative way
of doing stuff that is faster for HSQLDB may be slower for other
As to fdo#51976 (performance problem in Base linked to Java version
and/or crossing the C++/Java barrier)), dunno. Another ~36% loss with
JVM 1.6_26, but out of the sky with JVM 1.7.0. At least, fixing
fdo#53281 will give us a clean slate to look into this one.
