Hmm, I have a 486-33 and I swear that thing gets slower everyday!

Seriously, if it is Xemacs you are running, a quick test, for purposes
of elimination, would be to try the suggestion made in a posting last
December:

http://www.debian.org/Lists-Archives/debian-user-9712/msg01641.html
(summary: "touch /tmp/.sockets/audio0" before starting Xemacs.)

If that is not the problem, have you made any software, network,
hardware or BIOS changes lately?
