as further thing to consider, have 3.5.10 and R14 been compiled in the same configuration (either release-release or debug-debug)? On some intensive programs I noticed a speed difference ratio or 3-to-1 between the two.
But perhaps for TDE such difference wouldn't be to big since most of the time the system is just waiting for user actions.
Just my two cents.
