Not helpful.  But, doh! I realized that in my calculations of network
throughput vs. disk speed, I'd slipped a decimal place.  Transferring a
31MB file via ftp from the U60 to /tmp on my Linux box (which is tmpfs,
so no disk transfer speed issues that end) resulted in a transfer rate
of 10.88 MB/s.  A direct copy of a 37MB file from an NFS-mounted stripe
to /tmp yielded 11.2MB/s.  So, by my calculations, I'm getting up to
about 92 megabits/second.
