I have no idea how dispatching the packets to individual applications is
implemented. Steven may have a better understanding of the problem (I'm
cc'ing OpenPGM mailing list).

I don't think the rate is problem. By default it's 100kb/sec which is
extremely low and the system should experience any problems with it.
