I'm not sure when this started, but the more recent kernels don't seem
to be able to keep up with my TK70. Reading or writing involves a lot
of 'shuffling' instead of a constant write.

Cleaned the drive, used new tapes.. Didn't help..

The rest of the box should be able to keep up fine:

	32 Mbyte
	Emulex UC07 SCSI controller
	HP 2 Gb SCSI drive
	TKQ70 controller with TK70 drive

Older kernels (1.2 and friends) could keep it going in one continuous 
write. It's about the only area in which Ultrix is better ;-)

It's not critical as it ultimately _does_ work. It's just veeeeery sloooow..

								Bye Arno.
