Jack,
Thanks for the response.
No, plenty of memory. About 200MB being used by slimserver out of 800MB
total.
System is hardly stressed at all. Tends to run about 12% CPU while playing.

vmstat doesn't really change much during glitch, except some of the numbers
drop.

Thanks,
John

I'd suspect that's not enough memory for that many tracks. Got other stuff
running too?

cat /proc/`pidof slimserver`/status | grep VmSize

free -m

You say vmstat looks okay, I assume you're watching for cpu, disk i/o and
swap pages i/o?
