CPU use doesn't seem to map directly to in-game performance. For 
example, on my server, at 32 players it plays great and uses about 30% 
cpu. Bumping to 40 players increases cpu use to maybe 50% but the game 
becomes almost unplayable due to a sort of "lag" in game. There's 
certainly no lack of cpu power or bandwidth, so I'm not sure why this 
would be the case.

Also, since I'm mailing. OB7 seems to crash on a fairly regular basis. 
This seems to happen more frequently the more players you have. When I 
was running at 40 players, it would crash 6 or 7 times a day. Now I'm 
back down to 32, it crashes maybe 2 or 3.

The output from the vast, vast majority of the core files produced in 
each crash is as follows:

(gdb) bt full
