The profiler is keeping statistics about the calls, which accumulates
at a slow rate -- it's basically a counter of the number of calls to
loop and the cumulative time of those calls. This should be roughly
log(n) of the number of calls.

When you turn off the profiler, you don't see accumulation, do you?

(I'm not sure about your second point.)
