I realized I had some network traffic writing to my hard drive, killed
it, and started getting 7s.

Here's another machine.  I thought it'd be interesting to test on this
machine, since I just ported Python to Tru64 4.0f.

Tru64 4.0f OSF/1
AdvFS (not journalled)

ES40 - 833 MHz Alpha processors x 4, 16 GBs of RAM, Compaq StorageWorks
RAID Array, 36.4/72.3 ULTRA3 SCSI HDs at 15k RPM
