This may be normal, but when any sound event is triggered, I get the following
in my ~/.xsession-errors file:

OggS-SEEK: at 0 want 89080 got 85568 (diff-requested 89080)
OggS-SEEK: at 88640 want 520 got 0 (diff-requested -88120)

Does that make any sense?? After a few minutes, artsd does drop off to about
0.3% cpu which is what I normally expect to see, but I don't understand why it
hovers around 10% after the sound finishes playing.

Let me know if you can think of anything, otherwise, I'll just keep an eye on it.
