I didn't try the preloading suggestion yet, but I suspect it will work, 
although it's a little clumsy. However I still didn't manage to get 
consistently satisfactory results with chunks.

But now I'm wondering how SndBuf is performing for other people esp on 
osx or windows? Is it only on linux something is wrong? Actually my 
logic tells me chunks is not doing anything. Setting it low (like 4) 
should read 4 frames (whatever that is) every time it's needed, that is 
4 frames have been played back. So it's very surprising to me that the 
hickup is when at the read() and not distributed throughout the first 
playback of the file...

I'll see if I can find the time to dig into the source tonight...

peace, love & harmony
