it seems so. This is the common behaviour in programs. Look, just a find
real    0m12.732s
user    0m0.220s
sys     0m0.804s

And find to /dev/null:
real    0m6.268s
user    0m0.096s
sys     0m0.356s

(of course, before first find I ran a find to keep information in
cache/buffers, etc.)

Try with other programs, I guess that you will have same results.
