I took the vpn card out of this box, put it into an otherwise naked 5501,
with an equivalent firewall ruleset and the same network load - the system
load went from 80%+ to 40%, and the packet lost errors seemed to have
stopped entirely.

A little more info on how the interfaces are used:

vr0 - LAN
vr1 - WAN
vr2 - DMZ1
vr3 - disabled
sis0 - DMZ2
sis1 - disabled
sis2 - disabled
sis3 - disabled
