Well, just a minor note, which may or may not be cause for this large
impact: The bleeding packages are built with "debug" instead of
optimized "release" build options. I wouldn't expect such a dramatic
influence, and especially not only on x86_64 vs i386.

I will do a rebuild of some newer 0.21 svn cut w/o debug options and
you may want to give them a test to see whether there is any
improvement in performance. Can you please pick this up with me in PM
or bugzilla, so I don't forget?
