I've noticed a very strange behaviour. I run skype with a OSS wrapper called
"aoss". When I switch desktop (or I load a web page), aoss writes down these

write error, written = 256
write error, written = 256
write error, written = 256
write error, written = 546
write error, written = 770
write error, written = 320

It can mean that X produces some sort of audio crap on refreshing.
This sounds crazy, but I can observe it quite clearly. Audio skips exactly on
errors. If I don't switch desktop etc etc., audio works fine.

Does it mean there is a oss related bug in Xorg?

Thank you,
