Bwahahaha. They've been struggling with that since the first emu10k1
devices came out - about 10 years now ;-)

Yet another reason that open source drivers are technically superior -
vendors (especially video card vendors but it's also been seen with high
bandwidth disk controllers) do rude things like hog the bus in order to
get better Winbench scores. I found a problem like this with the open
source VIA Xorg driver and it was quickly fixed by the developer. With
closed drivers you're at the mercy of the vendor.
