[Rubyinstaller-devel] 1.9 gem env is far slower than on 1.8?

Currently when I run "gem env" on a windows machine

with 1.8.6 it takes [~80 gems installed]

real    0m0.360s

with 1.9.1 [~80 gems]

real    0m1.610s

with 1.9.2 [~40 gems]

real    0m1.140s

[all with 1.3.5 installed]

Not so for Linux--1.9.2 seems slightly faster than 1.8.6 for its gem list.

Anybody have any inkling as to what's going on here?
