Re: hash table access time

    Second, GC flips are inhibited during hash tables accesses.

There's something strange going on here.  The business about GC flips
being inhibited is only true of the old, pre-Genera-7 hash tables.  The
new table system in Genera 7 never inhibits GC flips.  The old hash
tables are still present in Genera 7, for compatibility purposes.  Is it
possible that you were using the Zetalisp make-hash-table instead of the
Common Lisp make-hash-table, or that you were using release 6?
