Currently it's running the parameters in almost all reasonable  
combinations to each other - and of course, that produces *a lot* of  
variations - which takes a lot of time.
However, if I hadn't ran the testsuite with those many variations, the  
slice-issue might have gone unnoticed.

Which parts of my testsuite should I remove?

I've narrowed the GOP tests down to "1" vs "300", which should greatly  
cut down the time needed until all files are through.
