Cdrom Problem

Restoring world from cdrom mounted on a sun server works like a charm
for 3670 and 3640 using copy file (symbolics recommended procedure).
Seems to run ~100 times slower on 3650 -- in fact, not enough time in a
day to let it complete.  Eventually pops up a restart menu: longer timeout,
retry connection, etc.

Symbolics tried swapping io board, paddle, and processor.  Tried swapping
ethernet connection with one of the machines that works okay.  Nothing
helps.  Any known problems with 3650 in regards to this?  The only thing
I can think of is that NSF is sending a lot of long packets and the 3650
has a slow(?) fep.
