Is your 5.8.0 version compiled with threading support? If so, recompile it with it off. Also, there is a new hashing algorithm, which may be faster for some data and slower for others.

I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.

    No threading and not using Unicode (since I have read that Unicode operations can be slower).
