Hello, I have a small question regarding the output of DisplayProfile() in
GAP4.1. I got the following output during one of my profiling sessions
(this just contains the relevant line:

248141*   289400   -16740  ELM_LIST: For a compressed VecFFE

What does the * mean, and why is the chld/ms column negative? Does having
negative numbers in the profile affect the validity of the profile
results? That is, are the negative numbers ever occuring in a summation
for calculating times in the profile?

See ya later,
