hg serve is soo slow

Hi hg dev,
With the latest update (version 2.3.1+20120908) the command hg serve became
completely unusable due to a bad-written javascript function.
My browser complains about some function taking too long to finish -- I'm
using latest Firefox on a brand new Retina MacBook Pro

The function process_dates (mercurial.js) traverses the ENTIRE dom,
searching for the "age" class and then performs some string manipulation on
them, all that in the worst possible manner.
I tried to fix it, specially because I cannot use the serve due to this
piece of code, but I could not find where that file is stored.

Would you please point me where that piece of code lives?
