Hi folks.

I used the "--slowest" option on my fast Mac Pro system to find out  
which regression tests take the longest time to run. In case you're  
interested, here's the list:

645.84s total testing time

The 10 slowest tests:
7.62 secs: fast/js/try-catch-crash.html
5.71 secs: editing/selection/move-left-right.html
5.32 secs: fast/events/click-count.html
5.19 secs: http/tests/xmlhttprequest/small-chunks-response-text.html
5.09 secs: http/tests/navigation/slowmetaredirect-basic.html
5.06 secs: http/tests/navigation/multiple-back-forward-entries.html
5.06 secs: http/tests/navigation/slowtimerredirect-basic.html
5.06 secs: http/tests/misc/DOMContentLoaded-event.html
5.02 secs: fast/forms/textfield-drag-into-disabled.html
4.93 secs: fast/js/large-expressions.html

If you have any ideas about how to speed these up, please submit  
patches. And don't add a new contender to this list!
