no, it does not change the execution time.

Yes, indeed it would; and, according to time, the time spent in GC is 
neglectible. Thank you for hints,
I'll try to investigate more; that was probably the wrong assumption.  
When I mentioned the GC, I was thinking about the memory management as 
a whole, not just about the garbage collection. But you are right, 
'time' suggests that the cause is different.
