WSPR 2.0 decode performance compared to WSPR 1.12

I have installed WSPR 2.0 and have been trying it out on receive. After a while, I started to suspect that the new version wasn't decoding as much as its predecessor.

To examine this, I ran up two instances, one of each version, bound to the same soundcard. This is what I see...

They're both running on the same audio source so why the big difference?
Also why do they report different frequencies?
