The things to tune are NBUF, NSTREAM, NQUEUE, and the NBLK parameters.
I took the default tuning after installing the thing and changed
NSTREAM to 96 (64 will work but it's close with X11, the default
number (24?) is far too low), NQUEUE to 400, and NBLK128 to 256 (it
failed at the default of 128, causing things to hang strangely).

Performance improved dramatically with these changes.  Thanks to all
who helped.
