direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Did you also get those kernel errors?   I have 2 files in there...  
drbd.conf.parsed (which has the same info as /etc/drbd.conf) and drbd0 which 
is some binary file...        I'm a little reluctant to blow that away 
without knowing what it is...     Both are dated from monday when I tried to 
solve my problem by increasing tl-size (which did away with some of the 
kernel errors, but not all and didn't solve the speed issues).

This isn't speed on a Full Sync, but during normal writes...
