***Resolved on 3/20/12***
I am using StressStimulus to perform load testing.  We are trying different values of think time to see how the system responds to requests arriving at different rates.  However, I have noticed some unpleasant behavior.  When I run with n users and a think time of 1s, three pages will have average times of say, 4.5s, 7s, and 2.5s.  If I run these tests with the same n users, but a think time of 5s instead of 1s, I would expect those times to go down.  However, they not only go up, but they all go up by about 4s each.
My assumption was that the think time should not be counted by the system when computing how long a page took to render.  Was this assumption incorrect?
I have recently upgraded to StressStimulus Pro Version 1.5.4442 and am still seeing this behavior, which I first observed in v1.2.x.
