Just in case anyone has a similar problem and since I never got an  
answer from the list, I thought I would share what fixed the problem.

Turned out to be a NIC issue. The 3Com NICS in my m0n0wall were set  
to auto-negotiate speed and plugged into HP Procurve Switch ports  
that were set to auto-negotiate as well. Going in and setting both  
the switch and the cards to 100-T Full Duplex fixed it. We are back  
to less than 2 minutes for a big copy now.

Thanks for a great firewall.
