With 9.3 I was the first reporting (bug 74585) the problem that ext3 and
reiserfs mounted on "/" showed on all machines a 50-80% disk performance
loss, unless mounted with "noatime", which is not the default. It took
developers and maintainers several weeks, up to two months, to recognize
this as a general problem, not a bug specific to my installation. And I
got nastier comments than yours about claiming it must be a general
problem. Later on a kernel fix came through you and the bug was fixed.
So: I am well trained in taking comments like yours.

Did you have a look at your systems load for the first 10 to 30 minutes
after booting? And this with the default sw setup? It would be more
constructive to give us (or bugzilla) some real numbers showing that
your default sw installation setup does not have the bug.

And I found the real problem: it's the way libzypp is architected and
implemented. Now what?
