How about a clue, Jack?  So much hokum has been talked that I've been skipping 
the sound threads, particularly as everything else plays correctly.  I thought 
or a moment that I was going to get a whole track played (my problem is in 
amarok, but exactly the same as the rhythmbox one).  This is what happened:

Jul 29 18:45:33 anne-laptop pulseaudio[26616]: ratelimit.c: 7106 events 
Jul 29 18:45:33 anne-laptop pulseaudio[26616]: alsa-sink.c: Increasing minimal 
latency to 56.00 ms
Jul 29 18:48:26 anne-laptop pulseaudio[26616]: alsa-sink.c: Increasing wakeup 
watermark to 46.00 ms
Jul 29 18:48:31 anne-laptop pulseaudio[26616]: ratelimit.c: 6194 events 
Jul 29 18:48:36 anne-laptop pulseaudio[26616]: ratelimit.c: 6014 events 
Jul 29 18:48:38 anne-laptop kernel: kio_thumbnail[808]: segfault at 1320 ip 
00a4f1de sp bfa0848c error 4 in libgcc_s-4.4.0-20090506.so.1[a2e000+2a000]

The moment of the 'Increasing wakeup watermark' message is when it started to 
race and crackle.

Is this what you were expecting to see?  I so, what's the workaround?

Just out of curiosity, I'll do the same experiment while playing it in 
kaffeine, as I have never seen it happen there.  It will be interesting to see 
whether the same messages appear.
