No.  I'm not sure it's the flash.  However, these delays don't happen 
on a standard PC that doesn't have flash (of course, there are 
several hundred other differences), but it does occur on a "network 
computer" that has no hard disk and uses flash.

The system doesn't really need to be real time, it can suffer small
