Thanks, this didn't make a difference but I don't think it matters now
that I found that the 10x slowness was a testing issue and the
difference is down to 2.5x times or so. All the other points you raise
can account for that and it's about as close as I expected. 10x just
seemed a bit large. It is odd that using "[ ] time" was slow and I had
to run it outside of that first to get the speedup though.

I wrote some of my thoughts/findings here:
