Of course, right after I sent the email I began to notice skipping
with mpg123 (mpg321- and the error messages 
"ALSA: underrun, at least 0ms."

Interestingly enough, increasing the ALSA buffer and the mp3 streaming
buffer seem to make the problem worse for xmms and bmp. mpg123 seems
to have no buffering options.
