Lets back up, becuase I still think there has been some hand-waving. If 
the answer
is really 'its stuck in GC and yes it sucks' then fine, but the speed 
is very large for this code, and it doesn't look right unless the 
Windows code is
very bad. The order of magnitude difference is hard to explain by OS 
efficiency differences, unless the OS interfaces are being used badly. 
Test and set
works the same in both environments, after all.
