It only happens when I'm streaming anything that's M$ related, so it seems.
I've been able to stream quicktime, and Real Audio stuff fine.  So I guess 
there's something fouled up with Mplayer's windows media playback.

I have a 3.33 Ghz Intel Processor, and 1GB RAM, and I'm running on a Cable 
Internet connection with (as of latest test) about 5 mb of bandwidth.   I 
wouldn't think processor, RAM, or bandwidth would be an issue.  (no one else 
is using the network right now.)
