Apologies for being persistant, but: am I really the only one that has
issues with NSS being horrendously slow?

FTPing a file from a Reiser partiton on our OES (SP2) blade to a rattles
along at ~32Mb/sec. The same file from an NSS partition runs at 4Mb/sec.
4 meg a *$!@ing second, 8 times slower :(

Could some kind person with an NSS partition try FTPing a file to
someone locally and see what kind of throughput they get, so I can an
idea if this is a problem with OES/NSS as a whole or just my installation?
