I'm not sure what system the benchmark is being run on, but the cache

the tile allocation code to allocate an extra 128 bytes of memory per
tile. See app/base/tile.c line 221
I think it would be a good idea to get some timings from some other operations also. Perhaps painting with a large brush, or flattening a complicated image.
