NO.

This is a BUG IN THE SCHEDULER!

We should notice automatically that X is "interactive", thanks to the
fact that interactive tasks wait for it. That's the whole point of my very
simple patch..

So don't argue about things that are obviously broken. Renicing X is not
the answer, and in fact there have been multiple reports that it makes
XMMS skip sound because it just _hides_ the problem and moves it
elsewhere.

Please test my simple patch that should at least attack the real issue
instead of waffling and hiding it.
