I am in the same boat.  Prior to Josh's patch Myth was basically
unusable because I was getting very long delays.  I had no problem for
about a month but lately I am getting these 5 to 10 second delays.
The strange thing is that I have not upgraded anything in the system
in that month.  The only difference I can think of is that the disks
are almost 85% full (1T total on 2 disks) where a month ago they were
probably 50% full.  Could that be an issue?
