We have >55 unique labels and > 5000 jobs.

It's been running for 3+ hrs and it's 1/2 way done. Label slicer - AND every other slicer should ONLY update affected jobs.
It appears perhaps under JENKINS-10431, some slicers were corrected. ALL slicers with global update pattern must be fixed and this behaviour eliminated.
