Have you tried increasing the send/receive buffer size?  In my local
ggate setup I'm running both the client and server with the options
"-R 196608 -S 196608".  I added it a while back after discovering that
the default buffer size was inadequate in certain situations and would
sometimes cause large block sized I/O to hang.

This was a while ago and I mentioned it to pjd@ so the issue may be have
been corrected, but it's something that shouldn't take long to try.
