yeah.. no, the machines werent identical. the slowness was on a KA420, my 
faster scores were on a KA650. Still, theyre comparable CVAX processors, 
and a factor of ten speed difference is not explained by the machines. 
the output was sent to /dev/null in both cases- i dont think that the 
kernel would be 10x slower in /dev/null, either...
