What index, specifically, is MSN currently using?
I know "Yahoo Inktomi" is the company line, but....

Does the MSN index just refresh slower than the normal 'Yahoo-Overture-Inktomi' index?

Or is the MSN rankings algo's currently vastly different from what's on Yahoo.com? I am getting 1k clicks per day, for one site, from Yahoo, and like 15 clicks/day from MSN.

Any ideas?

I'm sure it's slower than Yahoo because that's who provides the index for them, sometimes it's real slow and other times faster, but you never really know because they update it at different times.

No, not vastly, but in someways.
