Why? Can the SCSI speed be improved?

I don't think this explains it at all. It would appear that the SCSI
driver is running in some "extra safe" mode, or something. It has
512M to write sequentually to a partition... and the counting on the
screen, we're looking at 2 to 3 seconds-per-megabyte (on a drive that
delivers write performance of about 10M/s in normal operation).
Maybe what I should have said that the ratio of regular operation to
dump performance of the ide driver is about 1:1 while it's 10:1 for
the SCSI driver... why is this?
