This is reported upstream here:


And, as it turns out, Nicholas Clark points out a patch which fixes this issue
on my test system:

Benchmark: timing 100000 iterations of not overload, overload...
not overload:  1 wallclock secs ( 0.48 usr +  0.24 sys =  0.72 CPU) @
138888.89/s (n=100000)
  overload:  2 wallclock secs ( 0.50 usr +  0.22 sys =  0.72 CPU) @ 138888.89/s

Building a fixed version for rawhide/f8 - updates for F7 and FC6 should be
available soon.
