9 and found the performance a little better than ed 7 but still slower. Using quantify, the
possible source of the slowdown seem to happen in include/, xsputn()'s for loop
.  Any known issues?  Timing results are shown below.

It could be this issue:

Note that the inefficient behavior was mandated by the C++ standard
(and effectively still is, until the new standard is issued). The
development version of stdcxx implements the accepted resolution
and runs quite a bit faster (all there compiled at -O):

   # stdcxx 4.2 (unreleased)
   real    0m1.516s
   user    0m1.494s
   sys     0m0.018s

   # Sun C++ 5.8
   real    0m3.256s
   user    0m3.024s
   sys     0m0.033s

   # Sun C++ 5.8 with -library=stdlport4
   real    0m2.065s
   user    0m1.915s
   sys     0m0.024s
