Igor, please do file a PR and bug the maintainer as well as posting on
all of the relevant FreeBSD forums. Perhaps someday, maybe even in your
lifetime, it will be addressed. FreeBSD prefers to tell others about
how great it is and conveniently hides it deficiencies. They tend to
live by the motto, "Never make anything simple and efficient when a
way can be found to make it complex and inefficient" and blame
Microsoft or the hardware manufacturers for their problems.

Good luck, you will need it!
