I do verify William Shannon's performance results on our Sun Enterprise 450,
with 1 gigabyte of RAM and 2 gibabytes of swap space, where we have both
Version 3.4 and Version 5.0r2 loaded.

fun <- function() apply(array(rnorm(9*10000), dim=c(3,3,10000)), 3, solve)

Time Results
105 seconds via Version 3.4 Release 1
19 minutes via Version 5.0 Release 2
