I don't get it. Why are people reporting this now? Why did we never hear
about it before? Are you sure it isn't a browser issue? What do you mean
by request latency? There is no way that a single request should take an
hour. Do you mean it takes days of retries to get the content? That is
more credible. If not, what's the CPU usage?

 I've had one retrieval succeed after 16 hours.  Someone 
 with similar trouble was asked whther they were getting RNFs and DNFs 
 (route not found, data not found).  I don't recall seeing an RNF.  All 
 my outstanding browser queries show Couldn't Retrieve Key.  Network 
 Error.  Data not found (Freenet could not find the data) Retrying 

So you got a DNF. Okay.

   Almost all my retievals go into that state for a while before 
 eventually succeeding 

Okay, so your requests are DNFing. And given virtually infinite retries,
eventually the content is found. Right. The network just isn't working
very well for you. Now, how long has your node been in existance? And do
you have incoming connections?

 Is this what I should expect?  Will it get better over time as I become 
 better connected?  I'm seeing no inordinate load on my machine (Linux); 
 top says the CPU stays between 80 and 90% idle.  After two days, only 2G 
 of the 30G I most recently allocated has been consumed.

No, it's not what you should expect.. these should be findable on
stable. And other sources say that stable is working reasonably well
for them...
