For a "small" problem 10 elements (420 dof total) runs in 2.2 second when fsolve is is given a jacobian function the problem solves in 2.2 seconds jerval=3 and feval =23 , without the jacobian it takes 20+ seconds.

 The reason I asked is that there are a couple of finite element packages
 available for python. Two of them are SfePy <http://sfepy.org/> and
 FiPy<http://www.ctcms.nist.gov/fipy/>.
 I don't know if either is directly applicable to your problem. As to fsolve,
 are you directly computing the Jacobian or do you let the routine compute it
 numerically?
