[Whoops, I locked down or-dev more than I should have. Forwarding a few
messages from this thread. Brian, do you have any sense of how hard this
registry hack would be? The cynic in me says that Microsoft would lose
a lot of money if people learned how to make their non-server Windowses
stable, so they would not make it easy. -RD]

By the way folks, I run tor on my freebsd box, not my XP box, but I have
the same problem on XP just from from running a bittorrent client that is
saving to a (samba) network drive. I doubt I'm the only one, but I also
don't think Microsoft cares much about folks using bittorrent and/or tor.

So, since the problem isn't tor-specific, I would argue (FWIW) that the
best fix would be a registry hack that tells XP Home/Pro to be smarter
about network traffic like the server editions.
