I have found Yahoo to be the slowest in crawling and updating and Google the quickest.

I put my site up at the beginning of april, so far,
Googlebot, 10 hits, 1 page indexed
Yahoo slurp, >2,000 hits and growing daily, 1 page indexed

Google is friggin wierd...
One of my sites I put up last _November_ and google only has the homepage indexed... a few more url only
Another site I put up a few weeks ago- google already has 4000 pages indexed...
MSN never leaves the site, and Yahoo is never seen.
The people getting a lot of hits from Yahoo... are you in the Yahoo directory / pay inclusion or did they just start slurping you?

In my experience, Yahoo crawls and updates its index more slowly than Google. For example, Google indexes a new article from my site (PR=5) after one/three days. In the same period, Yahoo updates just the new home or subindex pages.

I have a site that was indexed by Yahoo just 3-4 days after going live online (buying domain) and submiting for free to yahoo. I have submitted to google and googlebot came after 12 days. Yahoo bot comes every week. I have some News pages (they change everyday) - they get indexed by google once a week, yahoo slurp comes twice a day.
MSN is something in between for me (better than Google, worst than Yahoo Slurp).
I also have an older website, very well indexed by yahoo (and ok by msn) but google indexed only my first page and that's all....

I have found Y! extremely fast in indexing new pages and content. Much faster than G or MSN...

This mostly depends on where you get your backlinks from. For example, if you get a link on a web site that is highly visited by Googlebot, Googlebot will likely visit your web site more often than from a link on a web site that isn't visited often. The same can be said about each search engine.
