I made some benchmarks with the VP/ix Dos emulation under 
386/ix ver.2.02.  The interesting thing was that running it
under VP/ix was about 5 times slower than running it under 
pure DOS. The benchmark does nothing else than sorting a a
matrix on on of the columns. This should only be memory access.
Are there any explanations for this big difference ?  I didn't
think that it is so big.
