Are Forced Writes turned ON or OFF for the v2.5 database? If it's ON,
this explains the difference.

v1.5 had FW=ON not working properly, so it was actually OFF. And IIRC
the default setting was OFF as well. See here:

v2.5 has FW=ON by default and it's obviously slower than FW=OFF, no
surprises here.
