Interesting Lucid regression

I can confirm both issued discussed so far, though the audio crackling
happens only on my netbook and not my desktop, and clears up within a
second. I've done a little bit of investigating and it seems to be a
resampling issue. Changing the resample method in Pulseaudio from
speex-float-1 to speex-float-3 (the typical Pulse default) seems to
clear it up. I'm not sure why this is affecting only one of my machines,
and it definitely started with Lucid.
The at-spi issue I'm having on all of my Lucid machines. Sometimes I
have to kill X to log out several times before everything starts in the
right order.
