I forgot to mention this in my previous mail, but going by his `time`
output, I'm pretty sure the delay is not due to the perl stuff. There
was only a few minutes of CPU time used, but quite a bit of time from
start to finush. That leads me to think its a slow disk (or lotsa data,
depending on your viewpoint), or the same wierdness I got with XML::SAX.
