There are a number of Sputnik tests (mostly testing S188.8.131.52 and S184.108.40.206) that run quite slowly across all modern web browsers. This has caused a bit of confusion with some people believing their browser has hung on particularly slow machines (think netbooks here). Ideally we'd break these up into several test cases where each takes under a second to run on reasonable hardware with the majority of browsers. Any ways, one such 'slow' running test is S220.127.116.11_A1.11_T2.js which is performing string operations in a nested for loop.
