Converting document using PDF/A-1a profile seems to hang forever

We noticed when trying to convert a large html document using the command line option --pdf-profile=PDF/A-1a it seemed at first it was hanging indefinitely but was in fact just very slow.

Without the pdf profile option the document gets generated reasonably fast.

While experimenting with the document size we noticed the duration would almost exponentially go up the more table rows we include in the document.
