Well the thing that makes me think it's not entirely related to sound is 
because when the sound problem happens, other things happen as well. As 
I have said, the mouse locks up and freezes at the precise time that the 
audio starts stuttering. If I was playing video, it would freeze/stutter 
at the same time too.

Sound Blaster Augidy 2 Platinum with the emu10k1 driver compiled into 
the kernel.

Right, SCHED_4BSD in the GENERIC kernel.

No, not that I know of. I don't see it in GENERIC, and I haven't added it.
