Are you working with edge rails? Since new edge version default to
cookie for sessio storage, mongrel behave a bit "slower" in that area,
taking like 4 seconds (Core 2 Duo) just to refresh its first page, and
without high CPU load.

I reverted that to pstore for development, and active_record for
production until figure out what is wrong with cookie based storage,
and of course, windows.
