I'm (fairly) uninformed on this, but from an initial read of the post it seems like memory management may have been optimized for SSD-equipped systems, at the expense of hard disk performance?

Whether this is unintentional, part of a calculated tradeoff, or a cynical business/tactical decision is another thing.

1.5TB of spinning rust in my macbook pro, no observations of this problem. Did see something like it when I was using an SSD that was about to fail.
