No ideas, but apart from the obvious "maybe you can pin it down a bit with
a few bisection compiles", it's almost certainly through the timer tree
merge from Thomas, which included various wall-clock-time changes from
John Stultz & co.

I don't see anything else that would likely affect any wall-clock time,
but who knows..

John, Thomas? Ring any bells?
