That's unfortunate. That means you're missing the In-reply-to: which
seems to break many different mailers' threading capabilities. :(

As I stated in my note, I only wish replies to be sent to the mailing
list. Also I am subscribed to most of them (and read them often.)

I forgot a uname -a:
NetBSD draco 2.99.11 NetBSD 2.99.11 (DRACO) #0: Tue Dec 28 09:44:41
PST 2004 root@draco:/v3/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/DRACO i386
I thought this list would be more appropriate, since I'm running
-current and the issue is possibly kernel- or core libraries-based.
port-i386 might be more narrowly appropriate, but I doubt this issue
is port-related, since to get sound working in SDL to begin with, I
seem to recall the problem was fixed with semaphores.
Also, upon reflection, xmms and other standard application software
has a slight delay in it which can sometimes become crackly or broken
sound on Duron-based machines if the machine is under load. The only
recovery from such a problem is a restart of the mp3 or sound player.

...perhaps tech-kern. Hrm..
