Thanks for tracking this down. It's not a big issue for me - I only stumbled across it accidentally - I was just testing to make sure that I understood how to use simple-macros with other libraries when I noticed that certain things seems to take longer when simple-macros was loaded. I was only concerned that there might be a bug in simple-macros that might need to be fixed. Glad to hear that there is not and that this is only a matter of taxing resources excessively.

BTW, your responsiveness on this list is nothing short of amazing, and Chicken grows more and more impressive with each release.

warmest regards,
