Actually, the screen shot raises more questions than it answers, and your environment is not one I can readily reproduce. In the future could you provide your info as plain text rather than a screen shot? It would be far more convenient for those looking at it.

It looks like some of your results might be using built-in time functions in ksh and/or bash. Using the "which" command can help nail this down.

And finally, it would be worth knowing which of the several result in your screenshot you consider wrong and why. It is very possible for a lot of CPU time to be racked up in a guest operating system doing simple operations, especially if the host OS has the core(s) it's running on in a power saving state.

Thanks!

I got surprised time utility reports incorrect times. I think bug itself will be clear if you review screenshot attached.

I run Slackware 14 32 bit from VirtualBox under Windows 7 32 bit, CPU Celeron 887.
