I'm seeing this in the 0602 M16 build on OpenVMS (cos that's where my debug environment is), but I suspect is happening on all UNIX based builds. Downloading a large file over a reasonably fast link is very slow. One of the reasons I've been able to determine so far is that it appears that each file in the disk cache is continually getting stat'd while the download is in progress. I have no idea why, but I can see this quite clearly when I put a trace on the stat routine. If I disable the disk cache (set size to zero) the stat's stop and the download speeds up.
over to Networking (i don't think this is an xp apps bug, but lemme know if otherwise).

hmmm.... this would be a bad thing!

how are you downloading the file?
I'm not at my VMS system right now. I'll re-test with my M17 build later this morning to see if its still happening, and if so, post exact details.
I am not able to reproduce this with my M17 build, so I guess whatever the problem was, got fixed. Feel free to close this bug report. Should I ever see the problem again, I'll reopen it.
