This is largely due to unicode support in everything, as I understand it. This performance hit is, I think, completely understandable. But there definitely is/was something else going on when developing under Windows. As other threads have amply demonstrated, V9 introduced a massive performance hit, and it's my understanding that those issues have been somewhat or wholly addressed in 9.0.2.
I will be corrected if inaccurate.
