I tried the benchmark on my machine and got much different results. The
differences between shared_ptr and ptr were much less and
seemed to slow things up! (based on compare of benchmark1.1.txt and
My machine takes much longer on the sorts.

Anyway, I'll have to investigate to really figure why, but maybe
Phillippe's machine
is a lot different than mine:
