I had the same trouble on my RAID5 using netbsd-current and
reported several weeks ago at i386-netbsd mailing list. Bri
also sent a mail about untaring on regular file system using
netbsd 1.5.1. You can see them by looking for messages with
"slow untar" in subject.
I haven't seen any reply to my mail, but two weeks ago
netbsd-current works well, so I guess it is one of kernel's
strange behaviors appeared recent days. I don't know the
reason, but if you are not using current version of NetBSD,
just try it.
On the other hand, I experienced samba server problem. It
became very slow using 10/6 NetBSD over a week. I have to
restart samba server to get acceptable speed, but it is
still slower than regular. I may need to reboot machine to
get full speed. I'm not sure this is an application problem
or another kernel problem, though.
