R. David Murray added the comment:

Rather than closing it, we converted it to a documentation issue.  I think it is worth a footnote in the docs, since it is not obvious (without reading the source code) that a return statement will cause timeit to return an invalid result instead of raising a syntax error.

resolution: wont fix -> 
status: closed -> open
