We just tried it last night and it exhibits the same problem. Reverting
to the previous kernel (before the one we are running now - can't recall
the version off the top of my head) fixes it. There's something amuck
with the newer kernels but it's way above my head to troubleshoot.

I hadn't considered limiting the bandwidth. Thanks - I'll try that.
