One option would be to run "git bisect" of the client build to see if you can isolate this performance regression to a particular patch.  It would also be worthwhile to run a test with the git master client since this problem may already be fixed.  The master branch is very close to final code freeze for the 2.10 release, so should be stable enough for your testing, and if it isn't then we should also know about that.
