I have investigated a bit further: actually the fixed compilation time
only occurs when I run test files through the l3build system (both with
TL2017 or TL2018), not with normal files.

I guess this is done on purpose by the l3build system to avoid
differences when checking regression files.  I had never noticed this
before :-(

Sorry for the noise!
