Based on what measurements? What tools did you use to determine that it
was slower?

openssh? OpenSSL CVE-2009-3555 it seems. See below:

You were pointed at the related FAQ:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/533125#c37

You might want to read the following, too,
  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openssl/+bug/484417
(which is only half the story as actually they applied an experimental
"fix" in middle November only to change their mind in early December when
they reverted the patch again).


None of this has anything to do with you trying an optional boot loader in
Fedora 10 more than a year after it had been published and requesting a
fix "asap". Perhaps that package has never worked for Fedora 10. Perhaps
it has not been tested by any substantial number of people even after its
release in Fedora 10, because if the primary [legacy] GRUB still does its
job, there is not much incentive to try the development version before it
will become the distribution's primary choice, too.
