Well, something apparently did change, but I don't know what (yet).
Can someone verify that there were not significant changes to the
src/schur.cc file (it was called src/f-schur.cc in 1.1.1) and the
Lapack subroutines that are used to compute the Schur factorization?
If there were no significant changes in the code, can someone try
doing some profiling to try to find out what's going on?
