      I assume you mean clicks in the receive audio? Yes, I have noticed
      those for a while.

      My config is not very similar: K2+SoftRock, Core 2 Duo 3GHz, Win XP
      Pro. Sound card is a Bgears b-Enspirer (PCI). I don't think they are
      related to cpu load or the type of sound card.
