Fellow Mathematica Hackers,

relatively complicated integrands.  The integrands contain confluent
hypergeometric functions, incomplete gamma functions and the like.
I load the packages into a notebook, and then set up a do loop to 
evaluate the integrals several times ( on the order of 200 ).  

v2.2.  I quit all other applications and execute a evaluate entire
notebook.  My problem:  it is taking 12 hours for some of these integrals
to evaluate.

and there was no increase in speed.  I am a student, and therefore the
support I get from Wolfram is limited.  What can you expect when you 
pay less than full price....

note, I am setting MinRecursion->3, MaxRecursion->11 in the options to
NIntegrate[].  Thanks for any help.
