I just did some timings with the basic tests (Ubuntu 7.10):

ra_serf via davautocheck.sh basic:

/dev/random: 1 minute 33 seconds
/dev/urandom: 1 minute 31 seconds

ra_local via 'make check TESTS=subversion/tests/cmdline/basic_tests.py':

/dev/random: 1 minute 27 seconds
/dev/urandom: 1 minute 26 seconds

That isn't statistically significant.

What am I doing wrong? Is it different for you?

Or, is the slowdown *not* associated with basic tests - perhaps
there's a set of tests that are prone to the entropy source? This
would lead me to believe there's a set of tests (or code paths) that
are at fault. But, if it doesn't manifest itself in the basic tests,
then I think it's something quite code path specific and not endemic
to the overall system.

FWIW, my Mac OS X 10.4 install takes over twice as long to do basic
tests - about 3:28.

I'll continue to explore other test sequences, but I'm suspicious this
should have any effect in the common case. -- justin
