This might be the solution! :)
Well, I feel better knowing that I am not just pushing buttons on a 
keyboard and the setup is correct.
Here is the link to a paper in which they say the average delay was 
about 1.1 seconds (read Introduction for example) and later on in their 
own experiments they have a full authentication (without their proposed 
improvement) delay of 800+ msec.

Are they just wrong? They use Pentium III computers for their 
experiments, but I would not think that this would make such a BIG 
difference.
Your opinion is very much appreciated.
