J2DBench is much slower on 1.4.0_03b1 compared to 1.4.0_02b2 (repspin of b2)
It appears to only affect Win XP so far. I've tested on 2k and NT and Sparc 2.8, the results look ok with these os's.
I've selected one test to show the regression.
About 10 out of the ~200 tests show regression.
The setup file for this test is attached.

I also installed Service Pack 1 on Xp to see if it would
make a difference. No difference noticed.
