Summary0001988: Potentially slow performance of ReflectionMethod::getPrototype
DescriptionWhen "develop" mode is activated, calls to ReflectionMethod::getPrototype get very slow (~7ms) in some conditions. I didn't manage to build a simple reproducer, for me this only occurs when building the Symfony DIC container (where this function will be called thousands of times, leading to request durations of 30+ seconds). But for this case the problem is 100% reproducible.
After deactivating Xdebug, duration of the function call is negligible (~2s for the complete request instead of 30s, but this comes from other sources, getPrototype has practically no impact then). Stopping the listener or removing the trigger cookie is not enough; also Xdebug is configured to be activated on trigger only.

Thank you for your work!
Steps To ReproduceA minimal Symfony project reproducing the issue can be found here: (just build the container - let me know if you need a pointer on how to run a Symfony app)
I didn't report this to Symfony as I can't see anything special in their method usage, so thought it might be best here. The problem is reproducible for colleagues using the same Docker setup, so it isn't specific to my machine but might somehow be specific to our setup, though I can't think of any cause (if you have a suggestion, I'm happy to investigate further).
Additional InformationThe slowness happens in \Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\Compiler\AutowireRequiredMethodsPass
TagsNo tags attached.
Operating SystemUbuntu Linux

Did some tests and would like to share the results:

The problem DOES occur on another machine with a plain setup (no Docker, fresh PHP 7.4 install, Xdebug 3.0.4) with the linked simple Symfony app.

The problem does NOT occur when downgrading to Xdebug 2.9.8 using my real-world application (and otherwise unchanged environment). Symfony container build time goes down to ~12s which is expected. As the container grew in the meantime, build time went up to 158s with Xdebug 3.0.4 (with 12507 calls to ReflectionMethod::getPrototype using up 129s = 81% of the wall time according to Blackfire)

Thanks again for your help!
