Hi Matt,

It's not just you.  I've confirmed it.

I reset back to 202e11543ead0d21a8485879654c927ec95ea7f0
[Don't dereference or free undefined "msg" upon OOM.],
ran make, then "make check" and the latter took 15 minutes.

Now, "make check" on the latest, f20854ec61eef1aea313920f0cf193a78c1a9219
[fish: handle some out-of-memory conditions], is at only 95/174, and it's
already taken 23 minutes (50% longer).  I noticed that this one

  35/174 test_zerofree_0

took a particularly long time, but wasn't watching the whole time,
so no hard numbers.
