Sounds really strange. On my one really old box: 
	- P166/64M
	- 66 mHz bus
	- Linux SuSE 7.1 Pro
	- Python 2.0 (that good-old one)
	- Oracle i8 Client
	- Zope 2.5.0 (patched)
	- Lots of transaction every 5 min
	- Load average ~1.0 - ~2.0 one Python project ~100K which imports lots of standard modules from 
Python and lots of my -- "compiles" in few seconds and works quite faster 
than old Perl equivalent.

Maybe problem in /dev/hands? :\

If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done.
