[Spambayes] dumbdbm faster than bsddb3

I moved from spamcan to spambayes today and wasted a couple hours
I ran this on approximately 2000 messages and aggregated the stats.
The entire run was 496 CPU seconds.
When looking at the profiling information I realized that I was using
dumbdbm, which is supposed to very slow. I installed bsddb3, rebuilt
my db and rerun the profiling tests.
The entire run was now 520 CPU seconds, a 4.8% increase.
So it seems like "stupid beats smart" goes for speed optimizations to.
Can anyone corroborate this?
