Public bug report changed:

Apologies for stating the obvious.

Hmm I was going ask whether you were using OSS on slack but you've already answered that question and you said transfer speeds on all distros are pretty similar...

What does top say your system load is during the dropouts on Ubuntu vs Slackware? Does iostat (you'll have to have sysstat installed to get it) show similar results on both distros too? Can you reproduce the problem with command line sound players like mpg123 on the console? I'm out of ideas on how to narrow this one down...
