The old one will not support internationalization but the new one
does.  That is a big difference in functionality.

This is probably due to using a non-standard locale.  Check the
settings of all of the locale affecting variables with the 'locale'


In your script you may change your current local to a standard one and
this should improve the performance.

  export LC_ALL=C

Personally I use the following configuration:

  export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
  export LC_COLLATE=C

But obviously that is a personal preference and others will prefer
different configurations.
