The sense I've been getting from the emails over the past 2
months is that 2.4.19 with LL and/or preemptive just isn't performing
as well as, say, 2.4.18 LL/PE. I have no numbers or proof, just seems
like the trend. Might be worth stepping back to 2.4.18 to try
out for yourself, unless you can't for other reasons.
