It sounds like you're running nightly builds. I think some other
responders to this thread have assumed that you meant that the actual
code change that resulted in r38760 being committed to Subversion
caused a performance regression, while what you really mean (I think)
is that the r38760 nightly build is slower than some nightly build
prior to it.
Can you tell us which builds you ran and the "score" you obtained for
each? (How was the "score" determined, btw?)
