hello, sorry to drag up a slightly outdated topic, but i just installed 5.3beta5
and i'm having the same issue. the last time i used freebsd was back in march at
version 5.2 and 5.2.1. the issue existed then too, hence trying out 5.3beta5 now
+to
see if it was gone. while it isn't gone, i'm glad to see people are finally
+noticing
the problem as more than just "oh your hardware must be faulty". i ran the
+following:
  
> An easy way to reproduce these
> skips is to run `while true; do sysctl vm.vmtotal; done`, while 
> playing an mp3.
  
and i get the nice "person being removed from the matrix" effect. haven't yet
+tried
the patch, but i want to get on that asap. can anyone else verify that the patch
works? and furthermore, is it going to be worked into the freebsd source
+post-haste? ;) thanks,

- ryan
