Maybe because it is not a simple copy... it has to compare all of the
files in the local copy of the profile to what is contained in the
remote stored profile... so it would be the comparison process that
causes it to be slower.

Now, if it is only copying one huge file, then maybe it could be
considered a bug, because I would think that the actual copy process
should be the same...
