It is strange, to me it seems like the <primitive: 148> fails back to the
smalltalk implementation (http://bit.ly/2kjYdHv).
However when trying to copy a small array like #(1 2 3 4) copy I cannot
step-into the #shallowCopy
nor when I try to copy a big array like (1 to: 100000) asArray copy
However, when I do cmd+. while running my bench the debugger stops in the
is this a debugger thing ?
or the primitive really fails ? -- which can explain the > 2.6 slowdown
