BTW - I did try ADInsight, but it didn't show me anything (maybe because this is a 64 bit windows?)

Anyway, I ran it with 0.3 and nsswitch = db and the result is???

1.68-1.72 seconds

With nsswitch = files db it was 1.43-1.45 seconds.

With nsswitch = files it was 0.13-0.14 seconds

(It seems basically the same as 0.2)
