Thanx for the detailed configs, but I'm not having any problem with my PV 
domain. I just set my PULSE_SERVER, and it works w/o any further fuss, or 
latency problems.

It's my Windows XP hvm I'm having trouble with, which is using winesd. I've 
just finished experimenting with realtime scheduling for the pulseaudio 
server, and it didn't help - the sound still skips/repeats. This leads me to 
believe it is not the server that's not fast enough, but the hvm that isn't 
supplying sound packets fast enough. Probably this is from either the 
overhead of an hvm domain, or winesd is a really sucky driver. Nothing in 
Device Manager for the Enlightenment Driver seems to be configurable.

If I find anything that helps, I'll report back.
