A good thought, but no, the connection quality seems pretty good. Office
to home (the slow way):

    155 packets transmitted, 155 packets received, 0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 57.404/60.292/77.509/2.298 ms

Home to office (the fast way):

    101 packets transmitted, 101 packets received, 0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 55.501/63.030/80.626/3.976 ms

Sadly, the problem's been reported by everyone who uses the VPN on a
regular basis, and they don't all share a common ISP. I've tried it
through Comcast and a local DSL provider.

De-bonding the T1 would be tricky, but if the ISP is no help, I'll try
setting up an external PPTP server to see if I can repeat the problem
there. Darned convenient that m0n0wall apparently makes PPTP delegation so

Thanks to all who replied. I'd love to hear any additional ideas, though
it's starting to look to me like the bases have been covered.
