Sound drops

I don't like to work in silence, so I usually play back a 
bunch of mp3 with xaudio under Linux PPC from my PowerBook.

The problem is that I get a lot of sound drops like if the machine
were "mono-tasking". I have never had this with PC hardware under Linux.

It appears that those drops occurs when doing intensive graphics like
a Netscape redrawing or a huge text scroll within an xterm. This happens
with Xpmac or XFB_Dev.

Kernel is 2.2.1 home compiled (with or without my patches), and machine 
is PowerBook 3400c with 80 MB of RAM.

My question is: Is it a known bug of the sound drivers or is it a 
hardware limitation ?
