I had Ruby 1.8.2 on the Mac so it was able to run a program with 10,000
iterations per second.

and then I installed 1.8.6 with Locomotive and then the program will
only run at about 6,500 iterations per second.

so i wonder why 1.8.2 is so much faster?  obviously 1.8.6 has a lot more
features added to it.
