Restoring it, takes an average of 3,8 times more memory than disk space => ca. 1,2GB!
This is not surprising --- Storable may store the data more space-efficient than it is in the RAM --- think of malloc overhead, necessary struct alignment, and the size of a SV*.

Saving is weird, after all the 330MB have been saved, store takes another 2200 seconds of 100% CPU time on a P3 1,26GHz even after the complete file is already on disk.
Maybe it's the global destruction which is causing the slowness. This may be due to an inefficient malloc. For example, it was reported that on FreeBSD, perl with the system malloc is very slow on deleting a large hash. Similar is true for certain Linux' malloc versions.

    [vrk]: Hope he gets better soon.
    [Discipulus]: hdb sorry i profit; is known that a prime number is never a figurate one nor the sumattion of two adjacent figurates of the same order? like 3th triangular+3th tetrahedric
    [Discipulus]: if known where i can read about the matter?
    [choroba]: he's not really sick, we just got nobody to look after him today
    [Discipulus]: create an account for him; we are funny baby sitters ;=) come here child, want to listen the typeglob tale?
    [vrk]: choroba Oh, that's good.
    [vrk]: Discipulus I don't know much about prime numbers, but wouldn't that kind of an answer be in a graduate-level number theory book?
    [Discipulus]: my 8 yo daughter has two weeks of sleep disturbs.. we are gonna be crazy..
