I discovered that the results of my previous post today were
obtained NOT with 32-bit R but with 64-bit R. I was running the
script within the R-bundle of the editor TextMate; it uses
64-bit R and I don't know how to change that. Sorry about this.
The correct 32-bit results are

Thanks, but doesn't R have an internal timer? Results obtained
via the "time" command are not really comparable with the ones
that Sven put up.
