Conjecture 1:
What is the underlying file system on the FreeNAS box?
Why aren't you using the amd64 FreeNAS release? Does your SC440 have a
non-64-bit Celeron?

See http://doc.freenas.org/index.php/Hardware_Requirements

Conjecture 2:
What is the network hardware? I've seen dramatic differences with a
change of gigabit switch vendors. (The Macbook might send packets
differently than Linux.)

Be well - or at least have interesting symptoms!
