Well I added PREEMPTION to the kernel yesterday as well as the first
patch by Jeff Robertson. Immediately upon kernelinstall and reboot I
tried untarring Firefox and Thunderbird, as well as tarring them both
back up. Not a single skip, stutter, or freezing of the mouse/display!
I did more testing last night like listening to audio with downloads
open and encoding video, and I didn't hear one skip at all. The only
time I heard a little static was when I was burning a DVD and listening
to audio at the same time, but I can understand that.
Thanks to everyone who replied, this seems to be fixed for now. :)
