} Yes, exactly same machine and same symptoms.

I get the same lost interrupt issue on my dual G4. It doesn't just happen
on large/fast file I/O, it happens on any I/O at all. OS X continues to use
DMA just fine (I assume, based on a lack of sluggishness during disk
access). I don't have a solution, so I'd be very interested if you come up
with one. BenH suggested I check my IDE cable, but that doesn't explain how
OS X can deal with it.
