> It doesn't seem like "subst_tac" had anything to do with it. I still have no idea about what made "HOL-Proofs" slower on "at-poly-e" beween September 13 and 14. The log reveals nothing special, except a truncation at the end. (while processing "Predicate.thy"). My personal inclination would be to disable this test for this platform -- "HOL-Proofs" isn't exactly used by many people, and I'm not sure there's much value in running CPUs for 1 hour each night to test it on some slow hardware and old version of Poly/ML (5.3).

Could be.

Definitely not.  HOL-Proofs is am important indicator whether something
got utterly wrong in handling of thm values in Pure.  (Or would you like
JinjaThreads depend on ISABELLE_FULL_TEST also ;-)?)

The pain of introducting another condition seems bigger to me than to
raise the timeout.

So, (1) is my opinion.
