I'm not sure where to get the mandlebrot-unsafe.rkt that was
distributed with 4.2.5 (Eli?) but so far I'm not seeing any time
difference between running 4.2.5 on the one in the archive (after
changing the "racket"s back to "scheme"s) and v5.0.0.1 I'm also not
seeing any difference between v5.0.0.1 with the scheme version and the
racket version.

So there's still a mystery here to be solved somewhere! I'm running on
a mac, tho -- could it be a linux-specific issue?
