That seems unusual; the opposite seems more typical in view of there
being some substantial improvements to the query optimizer.
Have you tried doing EXPLAIN ANALYZE on the queries on both sides?
There would doubtless be interest in figuring out what is breaking

I did some heavy-transaction-oriented tests recently on somewhat
heftier quad-Xeon hardware, and found little difference between 2.4
and 2.6, and a small-but-quite-repeatable advantage with FreeBSD 4.9.
Now, I'm quite sure my load was rather different from yours, but I
find the claim of doubling of speed rather surprising.
