Defaults vs defaults.  Before I moved to ext3 it was on the same
filesystem as most of the rest of my system (everything but root, bin,
lib, basically).

This is on rotating disks, so I'm not sure how much difference it
would have made in light of that.

Certainly I can believe that tuning would help.  I didn't stumble on
any docs for tuning ext4 for mysql, but I didn't look for them either.
