[ic] Red Hat updates cause IC to crawl

I recently updated my Red Hat Enterprise system with the following two

RHSA-2005:043-13  Updated kernel packages fix security vulnerabilities

RHSA-2005:012-10  Updated krb5 packages fix security vulnerabilities

I am running IC 5.2.0,  Perl 5.8.5, MySql latest Red Hat version

Once I installed the above two updates, my Perl interaction to mysql is
very slow.  PHP to mysql appears okay.  I am running a non-threaded
version of Perl, and it has been running for over year without any
problems.  Where I notice this is my Interchange shopping cart, runs
very, very slow between pages of products when it has to extract data
from the database.  Fortunately I didn't automatically update my
production server.  I have going back to a previous kernel version, but
that didn't help.  I haven't changed Perl or mysql, I just rebooted the
server and the problem appeared.  


Has anybody else seen this problem or have any ideas what may be causing
the problem?

Thanks for the help,
