      Hi Randal et al,

      I'm having the same problem with my mac running either OSX or XP (mine
      dual boots via bootcamp).

      My delays are not quite as long but I still get cut off. I can confirm
      this by listening to my local system. I loose about the last 4 or 5
      sylables of my transmissions.

      Any ideas anyone?

      Mark
