It's been discussed a number of times on this list, and others (perhaps
nanog-l) but yes; their buffers just aren't great.

You'll find this doesn't get much better until you hit the 4948/4948E
lines. Even the 3560-X/2960-S aren't really any better.

Though, I've not seen anything mentioned in regards to the newer 3650/3850.
