[JDEV] Karma vs. avatars?

I'm testing out avatars now with my client running on several machines,
and I'm noting some strange delays -- sometimes when one of my machines
changes its avatar, it takes a long time (several minutes) for other
clients to update. The delay seems to be caused by minutes-long lag in
the server: either the <presence> packet announcing the new avatar is
delayed, or the query and response are delayed, or both.
I'm wondering whether the "karma" feature of the server is getting in
the way. Every buddy that requests my avatar gets a ~2kbyte reply from
me. At some point will the server decide that I'm being obnoxious and
throttle my ability to send data? What are the default karma settings?
(I run my own 1.4.1 server and have not changed any karma settings.)
