I've uploaded the debug info here:
http://disenchant.net/tmp/bug-12465/

Some interesting sections should be around these times:

01:36:04 -> 01:36:27
01:37:30 -> 01:37:42
01:37:52 -> 01:37:56
01:39:37 -> 01:39:40
01:40:01 -> 01:40:14

The output from ping is there too so you can see how the delays usually
show up (e.g. in clusters). The large debug file runs from before I
launched the VMs, right through the ping test. The trimmed file just
cuts out everything before I started ping.

Regards,
Kevin.
