that is a known bug since ages ago. first time i reported it was when 
when the shootout (original site (http://www.bagley.org/~doug/shootout) 
no longer responding) was hosted on windows 
(http://dada.perl.it/shootout). there erlang had no scores for io 
benchmarks. i could not understand why since my programs worked on unix.

in those days io was more dominant. see Timing Trials, or, the Trials of 
Timing (http://cm.bell-labs.com/cm/cs/who/bwk/interps/pap.html), for 
background.
