Not that I think this is your problem, but medium is almost certainly  
too small for today's hardware.

We've seen problems like this recently, but they have been on heavily  
loaded hardware, and are related to the overhead from ext3  
journalling. I know you said your fileservers were quite, but have you  
verified this by checking the IO load?
