As Scott said, It means I'm building with handbook and without debug or test.

This is an Intel Core i7-5820K CPU @ 3.30GHz, with 32GB RAM and 256GB NVMe 
"disk", so I think the question of speed is turned on its head - it's more 
likely to be too fast than too slow.

I wonder: could database operations be getting tangled up by queries etc 
coming back before another thread is ready to catch it? If so, perhaps I 
should look into switching to Postgres. I know several people here have done 
that, but I'm deterred by unfamiliarity, but more by maintenance issues such 
as upgrades.
