in thread IO::Uncompress::Gunzip to scalar takes hours (on windows)
The same problem on all files.
I've updated the original post to have profile data between a good run and bad run - maybe that will help.
It seems to be dawning on me, that the problem has more to do with the old AS 5.8.9 that I'm using rather than with the IO::Uncompress::Gunzip module. However updating will take lots of testing. Not sure which is the worst of the two evils.
Thanks for the help! ++BrowserUk
