I've been looking at user times only, but on that box the discrepancy
between user and real time is enormous!

It also suggests that a 600 MHz G3 and a 650 P3 are pretty close, and
contrary to what Apple seems to claim, the G3's MHz rating isn't worth
much more than a P3's MHz rating.

Could you run pystone too?

  python -c 'from test.pystone import main; main(); main(); main()'

and then report the smallest pystones/second value.
