Sqrt(time), you're kind of implicitly assuming that CASes solve equations the same way humans do. As it turns out, the algorithms (normal) humans typically use are either remarkably inefficient (e.g. the partial fractions method of Rational Integration) or almost impossible to implement (e.g. algebraic solving by heuristics).
