1) The  symbol is related to the microsecond symbol and appears only when 
testing from the erlang console, where at bash level (konsole, and plain tty) the 
caracter is not shown.

2) The time rougly doubles in the erlang console. Calling the test funtion from 
bash via: "erl -noshell -run arr test" shown "proper" times.
