By "single client request" I assume you mean a high level operation such
as checkout, rather than an HTTP request such as GET. 1.8 is probably
using skel mode changing from a single large HTTP request to multiple
small HTTP requests. I think pwauth runs a separate process to
authenticate each HTTP request so it is not as efficient as other auth
methods. If you must use pwauth you might try disabling skel mode to
get behaviour more like 1.6:
