You have weird hardware.

[aph@zorro ~]$ time ./testlog64

real    0m7.330s
user    0m7.328s
sys     0m0.004s
[aph@zorro ~]$ time ./testlog32

real    0m7.538s
user    0m7.528s
sys     0m0.000s


My boxes are PogoLinux WebWare CN1200 servers ( According to the manufacturer specs the chipset is "Intel E7520 Chipset." Here's the CPU info according to the kernel (first virtual CPU only):

So it's not a big brand box, but I didn't think of it as totally obscure either.

Unrelated - a previous reply to my post suggested that this is more appropriately discussed on the libc list, so I am sending a CC there.

Thanks for your help.
