I had the same problem for a while and finally found a solution somewhere
in the snd documentation. It seems to be caused by the default buffer sizes
that are too small. I am using the following:

	(set! (dac-size) 65536)
	(set-oss-buffers 2 12)

in my .snd init file and it works like a charm!


BTW -- Thanks Dave for your articles on the O'Reilly Network, that helped me
a lot in getting started with Snd. Thanks to Bill also, the doc is a little
demanding but very helpful.
