The HttpClient4 code in 2.5 has a bug that means it does not re-use
connections; this causes it to quickly run out.
However that should not cause a slowdown.

How do the average elapsed times compare?

Also what about min/max

The http sampler code was re-organised for 2.5; additional classes
were added and there is another code layer, but I'd be surprised if
that had a significant effect.
