Over all its just the same, as before.

Only in gcompris, since I needed sound on other programs.

When in the live environment, there was not much of an improvement,
still only about 15 where able to run it, and the client hangup (not
really hangup just slow down the client considerably for about 2 mins.
but for the user it is a hang and would click around randomly
worsening the situation.) would jump from one client to the next.

i am running on a dual core system, watching htop I would instantly
know that someone launched gcompris since one cpu would stay on 100%.

yeah very undesirable, and I hope we'll find a cure.
