hmm, in Catalyst/Controller/HTML/FormFu/Action/Config.pm, sub execute

     warn "4:",tv_interval ( $t0) ;

     for my $file (@files) {
         my $filepath = defined $config->{config_file_path}
             ? $config->{config_file_path} ."/". $file
             : $file;

         $c->log->debug( __PACKAGE__ ." searching for file  
'$filepath'" )
             if $c->debug;

         $form->load_config_file( $filepath );
     warn "5:",tv_interval ( $t0) ;

when called the first time, the output is:

4:0.001223 at /Library/Perl/5.8.6/Catalyst/Controller/HTML/FormFu/ 
Action/Config.pm line 31.
5:4.768597 at /Library/Perl/5.8.6/Catalyst/Controller/HTML/FormFu/ 
Action/Config.pm line 43.

as said before, I can't notice this when using 5.9.5 perl
