My favorite "hibernate is slow" story, actually nHibernate in this case, was at a company that was storing the second level cache in session variables. Half the database was being deserialized then resirialized into the session storage on every request. It also completely destroyed any consistency the second level cache would have provided, because session variables are per user.
