Interesting that it seems likely to occur on fast machines running XP SP2,
but not not on a PIII. I was also able to reproduce the same type of
glitches changing windows on my XP SP2 Pentium M 1GB RAM laptop.
So, XP users, let's try this - run chuck with the --level10 flag, which
should internally boost chuck's priority:
> chuck --level10 foo.ck ...
For me this got rid of the glitches. If this works in genereal, we can
make this a default. Also feel free to try other values.
Let us know!
