tHe problem with streams turned out to NOT have anything to do with
software. Not in the FBSD ports, not in the Ubuntu packages. I
found a clue via google; it worked. The problem was that my
modem/router needed to be reset to its factory defaults.
iftop sometimes stalled for several moments--enough to cause streams
to timeout if they did, in fact, get started. Now I can connect
even to bbc4 in a couple seconds instead of a minutes.
If anybody else has had trouble connected to distant sites, I
suggest you check your routers. Might find that you get much better
