Description Owen Stampflee 2003-01-02 06:11:04 UTC
When switching desktops in either GNOME or KDE, XMMS will often skip. This
occured on my K6-3 550 with 192MB of RAM and a Sound Blaster PCI512 (emu10k1)
with swap enabled, but a custom kernel and no swap doesnt exhibit the problem. A
friend's 733 Celery ( > 128MB RAM and unknown soundchip) also exhibited the problem.

vmstat didnt report large swapping so I doubt the change in swap is the problem
mpg321 and ogg123 seem to work fine as well.

Switching desktops causes large X drawing usage; X is niced to -10; this can
cause the media player to get blocked out.
