For one, try to not think with your gut ;)

Secondly, since there seems to be more interest lately, I'm sure  
someone will provide answers. At least you are the first one posting  
actual benchmark numbers - until now, I have only suspected a 64 bit  
VM would actually be slower than a 32 bit VM. It's what my gut tells  
me ;)
