I have tried to run xmms with libkse on both a SMP (Dual P2 300MHz)
and on my laptop (P4 1.7GHz). Unfortunately I must report that the
results are better with libc_r.
When xmms starts to play any type of sound I can hear spikes and other
distortions in the sound. This happens regardless of the load of the
machine, and it does not help to increase the buffer size. However,
after a while the spikes get less frequent.
I will try libthr when I get home later today and see if it works
better than libkse.
