When I started reading this, it seemed *very* familiar to the slow
server problem I was seeing on Linux. That was an earlier Linux and
I've just upgraded to the same one mentioned (Red Hat 5.1/2.0.34), and
will be redoing the test soon. I'm hoping its better, but after reading
this note, I'm no longer expecting it to be. Sigh.
