funny thing. I've been experiencing this for long time but after sending 
mail to the group I finally thought about launching it directly from 
osso-xterm to see if there are error messages or something. And guess 
what - when launched from commandline the sound work flawlessly. Tried 
again from menu - again it skips and stutters, why? What is different 
when it is executed from menu? Different priority? Or is the 
input/output redirected?
