nginx latency/performance issues

I'm using multiple runs with these commands:

ab -n100 <url>
ab -c20 -n100 <url>

Testing now on the same host eliminates the issue with the ip alias, so I can now see nginx running much faster for the 95kB file, (gzip is on, so it's probably less). Unfortunately, we have a embedded login form so if you don't use https, there is a warning in most browsers about this being insecure, even though it posts to a different sub-domain on https.
