Er, yes, that is concerning. Does it say why? If it's only occasional, then 
it's almost certainly memory allocation problems. 

It would be useful if you could provide a profiling run from the
worst-performing case, so we can see where it's spending the time. I've 
already voiced my suspicions, but I've been wrong before; I only wrote it :)
