I guess for some definition of "much" I am not suprised. I would expect the event MPM to consume
more CPU than 
worker under 'low' workloads (low number of concurrent clients) because it's making more system
calls to do 
the same amount of work. Event should start to show benefits as the number of concurrent connections
into the 
server goes up.  That's what I would expect anyway; no idea if the event MPM is sufficiently
refined to show 
any benefit at any workload.
