Strange Trace Route Stutter

I am doing trace routes, within a WAN.  To WAN egress the results are great.  Each hop beyond closest router is 25-28 MS.  really good.

Whats odd is the way the trace route results are being reported on the screen.  I am used to response - new line-pause-response . .  . . .  with the delays coming where you would expect.

But what I am getting is more of a partial line - pause - finish of line. Start of next line-pause-
Picture a good set of responses but a start/stop/start/stop feel to what is being reported, but in the middle of lines - not where you would expect.

And when it's all done, it all looks great. But it was almost painful getting there.  Make sense?

Windows 2008 R2 domain, combination of XP and Win 7 computers.  At this point, it appears everything is functioning nominally.  Server is fine, surfing internally and Internet seem good.

At first I thought it was a Win 7 thing, because up until recently I had been doing most of this type network monitoring on an XP computer. But I get the same stuttery response on both Win7 and XP boxes.
