Timing[] holes?


With 4.0.2 under Windows 2000, Timing[] doesn't seem to work, or at least
not to the degree that I would expect.  For example,

   Timing[N[Pi, 10^6]]

returns something like 84 seconds, but the kernel eats up 40 minutes of
CPU (and wall) time performing the evaluation!

Should I complain to support?

G.
