I had exactly the same thing. I'm now running a recent nightly build
that is a pre-release of 5.1.1 which completely solved the issue, am
listening to smoothjazz (using wireless) as we speak!

Now the buffer only runs low about every 2 hours, it waits for a few
seconds to fill up and off it goes again.

I am using a Slimp3 on a wired network and a Squeezbox on 802.11b,
however this was happening on my Slimp3 before I got my Squeezbox last

I go to a streaming radio, smoothjazz.com, and the stream comes in fine
for awile then it starts to pause for a split second every 2-3 seconds,
almost sounds like its skipping. and it doesn't stop but actually starts
to get worse and eventualy sounds so bad you have to stop the player. If
I wait a bit and replay it sounds fine but starts all over again after
maybe 3-5 min. This happens on each on un synced playing by themself
(other unit is off) or when both are on & I sync them. BTW, When I sync
them they and they start to "skip" they fall out of sync. I have a
Cable Internet connection VIA NYC RoadRunner, and I will have nothing
else running on the line (like a online game) to tax the connection so I
can't see that being a problem. I tried playing the station on iTunes
and it plays fine no skipping ever. I have a dedicated slimserver
running on Win XP Pro on a 2.4ghz P4 with 1gb RAM connected to a wired
10/100 Ethernet switch, no other programs other than Slimserver are
running. Using 5.1 and both Slimp3 and Squeezebox are up to date.
