Do both machines have the same amount of swap, and what kernels are the 
two running?  Also, do the xeons have hyperthreading turned on.  I doubt 
hyperthreading has anything to do with this problem, but I've found that 
turning off hyperthreading in the BIOS gets me a faster machine under 
Postgresql so I just thought I'd throw that out there.
