Because I use Solaris without support, and I tought this could be a version 
issue perhaps (3.0.23 vs 3.0.28)?

Also, I don't quite understand why is transfer performance dependant on log 
level settings. I mean, at 100Mbps, if log level is higher than 3 then 
performance drops significantly - like from theoretical 11MB/s to around 

The hardware is powerfull enough (Core2Duo, Seagate Barracuda's 7200.11), so I 
just don't get it. There must be an explanation of some sort regardeless of 
who's the packager...
