Probably not as relevant as for servers, but I'm sure the kernel does
make a difference. I would assume I/O performance affects application
startup time a whole lot more than process creation.

On a server though, that 62% (taken with a grain of salt until I get the
2.6.12-rc6 results) is really worrying me.

How about the kernel debug options - shouldn't that be a special-purpose
kernel?
