I think this started around 0309 or 0312 build. 2001031608 and 0314 builds show this problem for sure. When I have more than three windows loading web pages, meaning the throbber is turning for those windows, it takes minutes before I get anything displayed for any of the windows. Once one of the window finishes loading, other windows load almost immediately. I am on LAN network, and those pages being loaded are not particularly slow sites themselves:they load pretty quickly if opened one by one. If you try to load five or six windows at the same time, it seems to take forever, and even if I close all the windows at that point and open a new window, you can not get back fast loading. It looks like the memory space for MacOS is near its limit when this slowdown occurrs. I suspect that there is something wrong with the communication to Open Transport.
cc'ing some mac guys for help.

While it's lots of fun to pass this bug around like a hot potato, has anyone here actually seen this slow down on their Mac? Running 3 jrgm page-load tests in three different windows, and browsing cnn, bbc, usa-today in a fourth, I didn't see more than the expected slow down from trying to make my 400 MHz G3 do the unusual. The updating of the windows wasn't as interleaved as I expected, but hyatt might have a better idea of why that would be. I got CodeWarrior and Perl up as well, but there is still some memory left. Doug, Simon, Patrick, what have you guys tried so far?
Reporter, are you still seeing this problem?
It is WFM in recent builds. I can not be specific, but this has not happened since in the past week's builds.
