Times used to be in the 7.10-7.30 ms range for tbox...they're now in the 7.60- 7.70 range.
Perhaps related: bug 73382. Why is the keyword "smoketest" used here?
Because the keyword we use to designate bugs that should hold the tree closed is poorly named.
You misunderstand: I meant to ask which smoketest you are refering to? But perhaps it's me who misunderstand - is "TB" = Tinderbox? Startup times there have been around 7s the past 4 hours. Perhaps I'm looking at the wrong Tinderbox?
dupe of bug 110340 Bug 73382 seems to affect page load time, but not startup time, atleast by tbox numbers. start-up time being up was affected by some checkin or another on 11/14 http://bonsai.mozilla.org/showcheckins.cgi?&batchid=670
The startup time test still shows a lot of random variation. I don't think it's stable enough to be filing bugs like this, never mind cc:ing half the world. In particular, the numbers seem, without any checkins happening, to gradually increase for a period of time and then suddenly fall back to where they started (or perhaps not quite as low as where they started). Anyway, the numbers on sleestack (which is probably the tinderbox you were watching) did their little fall (from 7.76s to 6.99s) around 16:00 PDT on 11/22, so marking INVALID.

Uh...I didn't cc anyone. Mike did that, but I don't have a clue why. As for the numbers, no, I disagree. They remained in that range for days. I'm pretty sure they only dropped to the low level they're at now because of your or someone else's checkins, which also had a significant effect on new window time.
The drop in startup time happened after a bunch of no-op checkins. Inside the firewall (somebody's working on getting them outside), we have graphs of the startup times for openwound, which is currently just running the startup test and not pulling any checkins. It's quite clear what is happening. It's pretty clear even if you just look at the times on http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showbuilds.cgi?tree=SeaMonkey-Testerbox&hours=60 (FWIW, I don't think sleestack is starting with a fresh profile each time.)
Created attachment 59006 [details] sleestack tinderbox startup times The sleestack tinderbox is the tinderbox on the main page running the startup tests. This graph shows the recent drop that wasn't related to any checkins. (My leak fix wouldn't have affected startup time -- it would only affect new window time for windows after the first, and only that after some windows had been closed.)
Created attachment 59007 [details] openwound tinderbox startup times For the past few days, openwould has been running without taking any checkins. The end part of this graph shows a very clear pattern.
