One other thing to try: does writing audio to a sndbuf work?  That  
could help determine whether this is a chuck-wide problem or just an  
rtaudio/alsa problem.

The default buffer size on Linux is 512, if you think this could be a  
problem and you are willing to do some minor hacking you could add
to the top of miniAudicle.cpp and recompile.  Im not sure how much  
this could help, but it might be worth a shot.

The next release (coming early next week) will allow adjustable  
verbosity of the console log, and also the ability to specify virtual  
machine options through the command line or ~/.miniAudicle, in  
addition to fixes for many of the compile/run-time bugs discussed in  
this thread.  Hopefully if we can get more information out of the  
virtual machine this way, it will be easier to debug.  also it will  
be easier to do fine tuning without a recompile.  So you could also  
wait until that release.
