I have a stock FreeBSD 5.4 box that I put 8.1 on last night. I ran
pgbench against it and my tps dropped from ~300tps in 8.0.3 to 20tps
in 8.1. That's right. 20. No changes in any system configuration. No
data in the new 8.1 database, only the pgbench init'ed stuff. 25
clients, 100 and 1000 transactions with a scaling factor of 10, which
gives me 1,000,000 tuples to shoot through. 

I wiped out the 8.1 installation, put 8.0.4 in it's place, and
pgbenched it again. ~300tps again.

It's not a problem with system configuration if 8.0 works fine, but 8.1
has problems, unless there is something that 8.1 needs tweaked that 8.0
doesn't. In that case, I just need to know what that is and I can tweak

Dual Xeon 2.6GB HTT PowerEdge, 4GB RAM, RAID 5
FreeBSD 5.4 RELEASE, custom-compiled kernel
CFLAGS=-O3 -funroll-loops -pipe (also tried -O2, same difference)
