I use Azureus all the time and have a 2 mBit SDSL line. I am capable
of simultaneously down- and uploading 220 KB/sec in each direction
(440 KB/sec total bandwidth). The CPU of my WRAP (266 mHz) is at about
50% when doing so. I guess a 133 Mhz CPU would be maxed out, so I can
confirm your findings.

P2P obviously puts the most strain on m0n0 and should therefore be a
good testing field for evaluating other options. I am not sure whether
it makes sense to debug the current FBSD 5.3 issues and/or better cut
the losses and consider other options.

Kind regards   Frederick
