Here's something.  I have all those debug variables turned on and now
my system hangs for a moment approximately every 32.63158 seconds.  It
comes right back but it is very weird.  I know thaat this is new
because playing music stops for a moment when this happens and I listen
to music on the system all the time with no problem.  Is this because of
the debug variables?
