Any changes to the postgresql.conf file?  Generally you need at least a 
moderate shared_buffers (1GB or so at a minimum) and checkpoint_segments 
(32 or higher) in order for the standard pgbench test to give good results.

General numbers are OK, the major drop going from 30 to 40 clients is 
larger than it should be.  I'd suggest running the 40 client count one 
again to see if that's consistent.  If it is, that may just be pgbench 
itself running into a problem.  It doesn't handle high client counts 
very well unless you use the 9.0 version that supports multiple pgbench 
workers with the "-j" option.
