hello, i noticed recently that the bash function 'time' doesnt work as the 
man page says, but it worked fine on my old mandrake system.

it doesnt take command line arguments and insists on outputing 3 times, the 
user, system and real.

i definitly have /bin/bash set as the shell

does anyone have any advice?
