Unfortunately this hack only masks the deeper culprits (that appear to 
be a combination of sub{vendor,device}-specific PCI latency and sound 
hardware settings).  I cannot reproduce this symptom on any hardware I 
have access to running hardy or intrepid, which makes it more difficult 
to troubleshoot.

If any of you guys are headed to UDS-Jaunty (in Mountain View, CA) next 
month, I'm happy to "sit a spell" and look at the magic.
