I ran similar tests to PII/500 / Ext3 / Debian testing

mercurical (0.9.4) 

    $ hg init
    real    0m0.194s
    user    0m0.156s
    sys     0m0.028s

    $ hg add .
    real    0m3.004s
    user    0m1.640s
    sys     0m0.196s

    $ hg ci -m "- commit"
    real    0m14.993s
    user    0m11.705s
    sys     0m2.264s

For comparision, previously posted result of bzr 0.18

    $ bzr init
    real    0m1.101s
    user    0m0.620s
    sys     0m0.128s

    $ bzr add
    real    0m6.219s
    user    0m4.484s
    sys     0m0.320s

    $ bzr ci -m "- commit"
    real    1m42.505s
    user    0m43.171s
    sys     0m3.596s

Much of the bzr's "commit" comes from displayed messages. Hg does not
print any messages during commit, where bzr is very verbose. If
messages were directed to /dev/null was used, bzr would clock around
50 seconds roughly.
