I get this same thing with FF and Amarok. I'm running them via Xubuntu
installed over Ubuntu 8.10 on an Athlon 1.1G with 768MB & GeForce2 GTS
(ie quite old); though yesterday was using KDE4 and had same problem. I
find that even if I renice FF to 1 (slightly lower than normal priority)
and Amarok to -4 (high priority), using "sudo top", even then I get the
sound jumps. I thought it was FF and not X that spikes, but it looks
like it could be a race condition between X and FF - they have about the
same CPU use for me and could well be battling for resources (ie CPU
time). FF and X both spike to 30%+ on scrolling, even with smooth
scrolling off.

I'd have thought there was enough buffering for this not to have effect
but clearly not.
