"Populate compile directories" is checked.
This delay happens every time, even when I don't change anything in the
Now that I say it, it looks more like a launch time than a compile time.
Is there a way to find the compile time alone ?
Nevertheless, I have lost 20 seconds I think with this split.
Can this be because each new module must now `require' a number of others
modules, whereas this was done only once in the previous case?
All my modules contain only definitions, except for the top-level one. I
suppose those these definitions are not re-evaluated completely at each

Notably, I have a (auto-generated) 1500 lines module that is required in
several places.
