Testing lagg

I've got a new box which features two gigabit ports and I though I'd try 
lagg with LACP.

On the box I put the following in /etc/rc.conf:

ifconfig_lagg0="laggproto lacp laggport em0 laggport em1 

Then I aggregated the ports on the switch (3com).

This seems to work fine, although I see a 30 seconds delay from the 
moment a network cable is unplugged and the moment the network works again.
Is this normal? Can this time be reduced?
Any other hint or gotcha?

  bye & Thanks
