Thanks, but the solution was much simpler, though perplexing. This 
box (PowerTowerPro with G3 upgrade) has no USB of course, but somehow 
(no I don't know how) the Apple USB 1.3.5 extension got turned on and 
caused it (it had been installed by something long before and I 
always have it turned off but somehow it got turned on - inadvertent 
click in Extensions Manager maybe).

Anyway, I found I was able to repeatably get the link speed to this 
PTP box (as measured by Retrospect on the mother backup box) to drop 
from 3300KB/sec to 10KB/sec when activating this extension. Again, 
this PTP box has an Apple OEM 10/100 NIC; there is some weird 
interaction between this NIC and the USB extension.
