Speaking of which, has anyone else had reports of really bad server lag 
in the last couple of weeks? I'm not talking network latency.. one of 
our players has a network ping of 9ms, so that's not it.. he (as well as 
many others) have complained about the server apparently running 
sluggishly. Server cpu never goes over 40%.. I watched the console and 
the server FPS was high, and utilitization reasonable.. On a whim, I've 
disabled PB and so far, the reports seem to have indicated that the 
problem is solved, although I'm not willing to take this as 100% proof 
yet.. Mmm, 100% proof.. er, anyway, has anyone else seen similar behaviour?
