    Just integer numbers. I think it is a memory issue. I shut down other memory greedy applications and the retrieve process runs faster at ~40 seconds. I think OSX Lion has problems with freeing up memory.

      There's an application for Mac OS X called "FreeMemory" which, as the name suggests, frees up memory. I've been using it for 6 months or so without any problems. It was a free download from the AppStore. You may find it useful.
