*Only* checkouts. Everything else is running just fine. I think I broke something when I upgraded from 3.10.5 to 3.12. I'm going to try a fresh install and see what happens.

The server shows circulation.pl taking up 100% of the CPU, and that's two 3GHz Xeon processors. The 3.10.5 system takes three seconds at the most, and it's running on an old PC. I'm having the same slow response times running offline checkout--on 3.12, it takes thirty seconds per item; on 3.10.5, it takes a couple of minutes to run through 500+ items. The other 3.12 system, running on a PC identical to the 3.10.5 system, has response times similar to the production system.

Is it *only* checkout operations that are slow?  I.e., are all other
operations like catalog search, patron search, and the like running at
comparable speeds between your 3.10 and 3.12 systems?
