Im playing a very small wav sample precisely every 300ms using SDL's timer 
and mixer. The sample plays fine however after aprox 10 minutes of continous 
playing, i begin to notice a crackling sound.  Ive run the same sample on 
other OSS capable players ie XMMS and the sample plays fine thus im assuming 
its no OSS driver problem. Furthermore, Ive also verified that my program 
isnt just running out of CPU. Could anyone please provide me with some 
insight as to what may be causing this problem.
