I'm seeing occasional delays with NetBSD 3.0_RC5 and firefox-1.0.7.
But, home is on NFS, the server is completely new hardware, the client
disk was moved to unproven hardware, and both are using new sk(4)
network interfaces. So, no baseline to compare against. The interesting
bit is that running "ls ~" in an xterm has never failed to bring it
immediately back to life. I haven't had time to investigate more.
