It seems to show up in any test case I try, e.g.

    import hprofile
    def wait(m):
        if m > 0:
    def f(n):
        if n > 1:
            return n*f(n-1)
            return 1
    hprofile.run("f(500)", 'dump-hprof')

The problem is in the cumulative time column, which (on this machine)
says 163 seconds for both f() and wait().  The whole program finishes in
1 second...  The same log file loaded with hotshot.stats doesn't have
this problem.

A bientot,
