Well, that fixed one client/server pair..

On the Win2K->XP upgraded box: I deleted the net connection and
recreated -- delays gone.  (I feel like an idiot for skipping this,
previously. :)

On the fresh XP install: still have the problem, obviously these
connections were created new on XP, in the first place.

So something is easily fixed on the client side.  Any idea what's
stuck in the registry, or otherwise?
