MPS issue job003762

Titlesteptest is too slow for a smoke test
Assigned userGareth Rees
Descriptionsteptest takes a long time:

    $ time ./xci3gc/cool/steptest
    real 1m11.818s
    user 0m11.741s
    sys 0m21.352s

This is too long to wait when checking a change.
AnalysisReduce the number of iterations, or banish from testrun to testci. (Or split into two test cases, one for each test suite?)
