Since the question has been answered and the subject is raised ...

I've wondered whether these auto-benchmarks are a net loss.

The machines periodically spend a few minutes doing no useful work in an attempt to find a faster FFT strategy. But any gains it can find are not enough to justify shutting things down for so many minutes.

If I can liken it to a car race: Would you spend time stopped at the side of the road, in the middle of a race, to get out and tweak the timing belt (or whatever adjustment) in the hope of going 1 km/h faster on the straights?
