Yes, my Xorg has -10 priority. And Gnome is quite slow even with -10. X How can
I put value down? Which value can I try? Does it make any sense increase player
priority? Audio never skipped, probably an upgrade changed some priority.

Firefox, Thunderbird, aMule, amarok always loaded in user space. Neither servers
nor services loaded in system space.

I tried almost every player: mplayer, amarok, totem, xine, but audio stream
skips in the same way even with mpg321.
