I realize this question might take some patience to answer, but what
does the performance curve look like beyond three trials?  Does it level
off or continue to get worse?  If it doesn't level off, does the
degradation seem linear in the number of trials, or worse than linear?

I have no ideas in mind, just trying to gather data ...
