I don't see why. My Amiga could solve this problem. My NetBSD 1.5 box
solved this problem better than my -current system does.

I disagree, simply because I've seen better performance on this. I mean,
even *Windows* gives me better interactive performance under load right now.
I am strongly suspicious that there is a specific thing which will later
be seen as "a bug" which is dwarfing the tuning issues right now.
