I've seem something similar , in the past, on 6.2, when writing to my mobile phone's mini-SD card. 

what does gstat show? (in particular, is any device being used 100% ?, can u relate the slowness when it hits 100% ? do other disks other than your FAT disk become saturated too? )

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.

I speak for myself, not my employer. Contents may be hot. Slippery when wet. Reading disclaimers makes you go blind. Writing them is worse. You have been Warned.
