Argh.

I fiddled with this some more.

Minimum delay of about .7 ms seems to apply to the first wait.  The 
best I can tell, so far, it has nothing to do with seconds.

So, everything I suggested about your problem possibly being related to 
using seconds, Jim, is all wrong.

Not only that, it means I'm not able to confirm that waiting 0 takes 
very long.
