But test users report the OLD server is about 50 times (!!!) faster
Is your new server running i386 or x86_64 Linux?

If it's running x86_64, that's the problem.  Running i386 Linux allows
your CPU to use a “Virtual86” mode, while x86_64 Linux requires that the
whole thing be emulated in software which obviously takes more
horsepower and therefore runs more slowly.

I had a hunch that x86_64 might create problems and since the server is not supposed to need more then 1GB of RAM, I decided to use i386:

# uname -a
Linux dossrv3 #1 SMP PREEMPT 2009-12-15 23:55:40 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
