Can anyone test & explain why this function's timing is substantial longer
the first time it is executed over subsequent times?



Timing[NProbability[x>0,x=E9HypergeometricDistribution[58,11727,234546]]]

{260.25,0.948968}

Timing[NProbability[x>0,x=E9HypergeometricDistribution[58,11727,234546]]]

{0.234,0.948968}



I ran it on two different PC and the difference is the same.
