On my RH9 PlanetCCRMA box, I would see sometimes see xruns under GNOME
recording just one track.  Rather than figure out the problem, I
installed XFCE, set up it in way that suited me (taskbar in the panel,
menu of commonly used audio apps on the panel, etc.).  No more
trouble.  openbox (similar to fluxbox) also worked, but wasn't a
comfortable environment (mostly because, without lots of tweaking,
everything is done through root menus, but the root window on my
desktop is NEVER visible).
