I recall tuxmath several years ago, tuxmath did not draw frames this 
rapidly.  This sounds like a new bug.

Even with tuxmath causing terrible bandwidth issues, this shouldn't be 
causing problems like you are describing.  Our test of 10 clients with 
several users using Youtube on a gigabit switch wasn't this bad.  There 
sounds to be something else going on like bad switches.

Did you also test the cabling with an ethernet tester?

Also, could someone please follow this procedure to become a package 
maintainer and add tuxmath to Fedora?
