Perhaps I wasn't clear.  The audio stutter is just the most obvious
symptom.  The entire system goes dead for a moment approx. every
32.63157 seconds.  Playing music and tracking when it stops was how I
worked out that number but everything goes dead.  I can't even get caps
lock to work for that moment.  In fact, it is exactly like a mini
version of the problem that this thread is about.  I don't have to be
playing music to see the problem.  It is much deeper than that.
