Okay, let's turn this around:

Anyone seeing this on SCSI?  Anyone able to reproduce it on SCSI?

If we're seeing horrible performance botches on one-drive-per-port IDE
systems (and I am, and you are), but we can't find them on SCSI, we have
a culprit.

Despite all the griping about this, I think we're onto something positive
that could improve the system substantially.
