Yes, it does. But it has been the default for more than a decade now,
so at least it isn't a new slowdown. :)

Also to note: errortrace slows down runtime, but often the thing that
is slow is compilation. Errortrace slows that down a little, but not
nearly as much. So, compared to the previous release, the change is
that the compilation is now cached, so overall a speed up.
