>> I noticed some absurd preference checking in standard images a while back, but turning this off made no noticeable different in optimized Cog.  Look for uses of Preferences subPixelRenderFonts, e.g. installStrikeFont:foregroundColor:backgroundColor:.  There's a non-local return in the default path on preference access.  So not having subPixelRenderFonts a defined preference method creates lots on noise when doing VM debugging.
