Interesting, I'll have to try this on some more hardware and see if I can
reproduce there.

I was simply copying a 60MB file to the test machine via scp, in a bash while

still fail. So I don't believe the net load is directly related.

I am going to work with Ingo's trace-it.c today and report back.
