Great, thanks.

Here are some results for 2.4.10-pre12 (Andrea's VM :-)

Athlon II 1 GHz (0.18 µm)
MSI MS-6167 Rev 1.0B (Irongate C4)
640 MB PC100-2-2-2 SDRAM
IBM DDYS 18 GB U160 (on AHA-2940UW)
ReiserFS 3.6 on all partitions

Sound driver is the new kernel one for SB Live! (not ALSA).
No swap used during whole test.

2.4.10-pre12 + patch-rml-2.4.10-pre12-preempt-kernel-1 +
patch-rml-2.4.10-pre12-preempt-stats-1

Hope my numbers help to find the right reason for the hiccups.
ReiserFS seems _NOT_ to be the culprit for this.
Maybe the scheduler it self?

Renice -20 both artsd prozesses (the KDE-2.2.1 noatun sound daemon)
help a little bit but there are still some hiccups (1~3 sec)
remaining.

But the system is very responsive (mouse, keyboard).
