Generally: Yep, I've seen plenty of slowdowns.
On both Windows and Mac, depending on the task.

Specifically: I'd like to test this later;
still recovering from two back-to-back illnesses.

Suggestion: although your code may look short,
you're potentially testing up to 5 different issues:

1. Loop speed
2. Text line parse speed
3. Text concat speed
4. Variable/memory speed
5. Mac to Win text

It would be good to narrow your test
and see which area has the biggest impact,
or eliminate some of those possible factors.

Best wishes,
