Interesting.. But it sounds like these people are having this problem
when listening to local mp3s.. I don't seem to have that problem.

It is possible it is a related issue, since I am using the
snd-intel-8x0 drivers. But my sound card does not share an IRQ with
either network device, so it is probably unlikely.

make -j 3  for a kernel compile does not seem to be able to trigger it
on local mp3s.
