Ooh, my machine is SO much faster than yours... Oh, wait, that might be a bit of a problem...

When I was at university the central IT group upgraded the core in the datacentre to GigE. The increase in speed basically saturated everything else, including the DEC Alphas running Samba which caused pretty much everything in the university to crawl. I believe the techies had to work very hard to tune performance to acceptable levels before fixing properly it by throwing hardware at the problem.
