Also, can you verify with a read-only test to see where it's at?  I have 
not tested writes with that many threads.  I notice mysql goes much faster 
with a fresh table too.  So can you blow away and recreate the sysbench 
tables and then do read-only?  If that is much slower we'll know there is 
some configuration problem or similar.
