Pause[t], t<1

I'm using Mathematica 4.1 for Mac OS X, and all of the following 
commands take about the same amount of time---a little over 10 seconds:

      Table[ Pause[1],  {10}];

      Table[ Pause[0.1],  {10}];

      Table[ Pause[0.01],  {10}];

Does Pause not work for time intervals less than 1 second? What am I 
missing here? The value $TimeUnit on this machine is 1/100.
