Our experience mirrors Jason's here. We typically use FME to create SDFs  
and keep them in an unmanaged directory on the MapGuide server with  
FeatureSource configurations pointing to the complete path of the  
individual files (we don't use the directory alias mechanism). Performance  
across network shares is too sluggish.
