Dear Paul,

  I did not investigate the issue further but I have the feeling that it 
has to do something with packed arrays:

I get a speed up of a factor of 6.5 if I change your code into (I just 
add a '.' after 100000 and 10):

mNumberSamples = 100000.;
mFrequency = 10.;
m = Table[{t/mNumberSamples,
     Sin[t/mNumberSamples mFrequency*2 \[Pi]]}*1.0, {t, 1,
    mNumberSamples}]; mStartTime = SessionTime[];
ListLinePlot[m]
mStopTime = SessionTime[];
StringForm["Elapsed time = ``", N[mStopTime - mStartTime]]

If you try your original code Developer`PackedArrayQ[m] returns False while
in my modified code Developer`PackedArrayQ[m] returns True. So I guess
that ListLinePlot works faster with packed arrays.

Best,

    Christoph
