I ran your code through a profiler and it shows that the slowdown comes
from boost::bind and boost::shared_ptr that are needed to setup the
async operations.

I also tried to change your async_server so that it does not write all
buffers in a loop, but instead writes the next buffer from the handler.
This yielded almost the same performance results.

I also tried to omit the connection thread, so that all work is done in
the io_service thread. Same performance results.
