MySQLCommunityServer plugin slow(er)?

I wrote a Realbasic app back in 2006 which uses the MySQLdatabase plugin and a MySQL server 5.0.92. If I want to port my software to Xojo I can’t use the MySQLDatabase plugin anymore and I have to migrate to MySQLCommunityServer plugin.

After testing my software with MySQLCommunityServer I noticed it is considerably slower than the old plugin. Anybody else notice this?
