Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

That's completely out of the ordinary. DRBD sync should be more like raw disk 
throughput (50MB/s in our case). Are you sure, you set the syncer rate 
in /etc/drbd.conf to something reasonable like "rate 100M;"? If yes, there's 
something fishy going on and standard infos, like hard- and software 
configuration may needed to find out, what's wrong.
