Do I need traffic shapping for this…?

Here is my pfsense setup:
pfsense 1.2 release
2.4Ghz P4, 1GB RAM
LAN1 Gigabit (em)
LAN2 100Mb (re)
LAN3 100Mb (re)
When a large file is sent from LAN1 to LAN2, the file is transfered at a little under 100Mb/s as expected, but this connection will hog nearly 100% of the bandwidth, so that a second concurrent transfer from LAN1 to LAN2 is virtually impossible.
This was not a problem until I upgraded LAN1 from 100Mb to Gigabit.
My pfsense box is running at less than 10% CPU while these transfers are taking place.
I would rather not mess with traffic shaping since I don't need to put a higher priority on any particular traffic. I'm just looking for relatively fair sharing of the available bandwidth.

Yes, as far as I know their is no way to do this without traffic shaping.
