We had great fun with wacko scheduling problems in CrossOver for iTunes
and such, and I recently had a support ticket where a guy claimed with
2.6.10 and CX 4.0 he had massive slowdowns that made it unusable - but
with 4.1 (a bugfix release) it went back to normal speed.

Now IIRC we *did* have some scheduling changes in there, but I didn't work
on that, Mike McCormack and Jeremy White did. I seem to remember Mike
doing things like rearranging the file descriptors in the servers poll
array but I don't remember the details and I don't remember if these
patches went upstream (they were kind of last minute). Mike?

thanks -mike
