The results are intriguing, but highly counter-intuitive. On the fast
system (the VM), there are over 800 events with a duration exceeded
0.01; on the slow system (the host), there are only 36 such events.
What is also quite confusing is that files that should be being opened
read-only (PDFs, XML files, opened with \openin, \input) are being
opened using CreateFile and with share mode "read/write" ...
