Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I had already tried raising
hw.snd.latency (from 5 to 10) but it hadn't changed anything.

Basically, I have the feeling that, when I end up using xine (amarok, xine
itself, ...) sound works correctly, but when I bypass xine (mplayer, vlc),
the problem occur...
