Spotted some unusual behaviour recently. If I create a figure with subplots (see below) and linkaxes, save it and then reopen it, it takes approx 15 mins to open the fig, with one processor on my machine being used at 100% for all of that time. The figure opens in about a 1s if linkaxes isn't used. This behaviour isn't seen in older releases (I tried it in 09a). I assume it is a problem with linkaxes but wondered if anyone had a bright idea for a work around (other than ensuring axes aren't linked before saving!)? Linked and unlinked versions of the figure as generated on my machine attached.
ax(i) = subplot(6,1,i);
