Well, I decided to try the upgrade from F9 to F10 and see what happenned.
I used preupgrade and it was probably the smoothest upgrade I've ever done. Almost everything appeared to work with no tweaking. (I had to change the device of my Windows partition from sdb1 to sda1 and remount it)

Now, however, I have found a really annoying problem with sound playback. The playback of mp3s 'skips' at irregular intervals with an average of about every once every 15s. I've tried vlc, rhythmbox and exhaile and they all have the same problem. I tried using aplay with a .wav file and that had the same problem too. aplay reported an underrun whenever the problem happened. I had none of these problms with F9.

ALSA bug?
