Troubleshooting Dynamic Link

I have a bit of extra time this weekend and am spending it 'troubleshooting' the slowdown in dynamic-link between Premiere and After Effects. I know there's a lot of stuff going on when I use DL, but is still seems to be slow even on a rather powerful PC.

Running Creative Suite on Intel i7 / VistaUlt / 12gb / SSDs / 64-bit. I can right-click on a clip in PPro and select 'replace with AE Comp,' everything works. But playing, scrubbing or outputting seems erratic and slow even if there are no effects applied in AE.

When playing a linked clip from PPro, the Task Manager shows that the 8 cores are approximately even at about 35%, so CPU processing is not the limiting factor. Resource Monitor shows disk and memory well below 100%.

If I didn't know better, I'd think there was a 'wait' instruction somewhere in Adobe's code. How do I find out what is keeping DL from fully utilizing the horsepower in my PC?
