Hello Julien,

There is a bug in BigInteger that forced us (until fixed/tested) to
switch to a slower implementation. 

This shouldn't be very visible to most people unless you're using SSL
and do a lot of connections (and/or renegotiation), which may be the
case of npgsql.

Of course some profiling data (see "man mono" or other windows tools)
would confirm if this is the case or if you're hitting something else.
