I just missed that before sending my message. ;-)  Still, running the
tests multiple times is necessary to get a decent idea of the
performance.  Your machine could just be oddly loaded during any single
run of tests, and that will skew your measurements.  Of course, my set
of 5 measurements isn't /much/ better, but you get the idea.
