I am using FreeBSD-4.4-STABLE, cvsup'd last weekend, and the version
is 7.1.3 as reflected in the FreeBSD port system.
I can try with 7.2beta, but it might be awkward as I only have a
dial-up line... if somebody with 7.2 already installed could try this,
you will almost certainly beat me to results.
I am interested if this occurs on Linux or other OSes so I can get
feedback to the FreeBSD port maintainer or OS if it is OS specific.
It looks like there is some semaphore contention, and the backends
call 'select' with a timeout AFTER the semaphore is let go. Runs like
10x slower than 1 of these tests when I run 2.

Would you try your test case with 7.2beta?
BTW, you really should mention which version you're using, and be
more specific about the platform than "Freebsd".
