I have has a similar problem before. The issue was that ARTS was running.
This delayed the sounds that were playing, sometimes for a second. I turned
off ARTS and is seemed to work fine. I am not sure that this explains the
sounds working well as root.

Subject: [SDL] Choppy sound with SDL applications when not root
When I start an application as non-root that uses the SDL (audio)
library the sound is choppy and delayed. I have no such problems when I
use the applications as root or when I use other sound applications as
non-root. I'm running Fedora Core 3 with the standard alsa sound
drivers. The behavior indicates that there are some problems with file
permissions. Has anyone else experienced this?
