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.
