D'oh. Ignore my last question about disk IO etc. I know your drive is
trashing... totally forgot to make connection from Mdv bug report and
thread on alsa ML :p

So I guess the problem is in some capacity PA freaking out in some
capacity due to the alsa error and causing the thrashing, which in turn
causes some IO cloggage which prevents your xfer going at a sensible
speed... I'm not really sure more than that... tho'. Hopefully someone
cleverer than me can offer a thought on your log file.
