xp multiprocessor is very, very slow

Please fix this for me.
Host: CentOS 5.3 Guest: XP-Pro SP3 OEM, upgraded from SP2 Vbox 3.0.2
I just created a new virtual machine to take advantage of 3.0.2's multiprocessor support. Problem, it runs much faster on a single processor than on dual processors.
The guest only has VBox 3.0.2 Guest Additions, Firefox 3.5, Ultra Explorer, and all M$'s current service packs installed, including SP3. No other software, including Anti Virus, is installed. It is meant to be my base system to recover from when I screw things up.
I also have a copy of this VM with only the base XP-SP2 install. It is also very, very slow under multiprocessors. One runs fine.
And since there is nothing on it, I can test away and not worry about hurting anything critical.
Many thanks, -T
