I set timing on in Sql*Plus 8.1.7.0, did a bit of DML and came out with
a time of (and I quote) "00:01:101.96".

Does that mean '1 minute, 101 point 96 seconds'?

Why is it not 2 minutes 41.96 seconds, which feels about right for the
run in question??

Or is it counting in base 32-and-a-half or something???

Regards
HJR
