[rc5] Abnormally low processing rate for Windows 95?

I put the Windows 95 rc5 client on my my Windows 95 machine
(tesla.alcyone.com), and after running it for a few days, I'm seeing very
strange results.  The processing rate varies wildly, even when idle (which
is what the machine is most of the time) -- but usually hovers between 50
and 90 kkeys/s.  It's a Pentium 200 MHz machine, and so should be doing
much better.  When I run the speed test in the client, I get a consistent
182 kkeys/s.

Is this expected behavior for the client?  Is it really this bad on
Windows 95?
