Thanks for letting me know. I wasn't aware that the issues had been
localized to problems with sound---I was assuming it's just due to the
frequency with which large chunks of the screen are being updated. I've run
TuxMath over a network, and it's visibly slower.

You know that TuxMath can be configured to not use sound, right? (It sounds
like you know that.) Does that help? Or not enough? Or is it that you really
want sound? My fear is this is more of an SDL issue than anything we
specifically can do, but if you think otherwise I'm interested in looking
into it.
