In a follow-up to this ... I was emailed privately by someone I used to
work with who told me that when _they_ didn't have a RO on the same
server as the RW volume, they had occasional problems accessing that
volume (the "slow release" was the major thing that I remembered when
we were in this situation).  They said adding the RO on the same machine
as the RW volume cleared up the problem immediately.  I dunno if there
was something else going on there, but anyway, it's worth doing.
