[linux-audio-user] Skipping audio output?

When I'm running an audio app like XMMS to play music, the sound skips 
somewhat frequently (maybe 5 times in the course of an album).  That's with 
no load on the system, and nothing using the processor heavily.  However if 
I do something that peaks the CPU (like dragging a window around really 
fast), this also causes the sound to skip immediately.

I recently installed jack and ardour and mean to install the low-latency 
kernel patches when I get around to it; they are mentioned here:


But I'm wondering, is this XMMS audio-skipping problem related to that too? 
  Will intalling the low-latency patches help with that?
