I haven't done my own benchmarks yet, but I'm quiet sure that was fixed 
about two or three months ago in 6.0-current. At that time I was figuring 
out how to avoid nullfs, but decided to keep using it, so I was conviced 
that it's been solved ;)
But I think Jeff can tell you more, if I don't mix up names again....
