Obviously there's something funky going on with my particular machine.

Luckily using Tie::Array::Packed is not mission critical - although it looks like a sweet technique when running through humongous arrays.

But it's a little scary to realize that a script that runs for five hours before completing its task, or an array with 20,000+ items in it, are not abnormal.

This is coming from a person who actually remembers doing single 4 page print runs that took so long that I could walk to Starbucks for coffee and be back before it finished.
