esd acts weird when not running xmms etc. as root

When I run xmms or xine as normal user I get a lot of dirt with the sound.
This happens after about 1 minute and continues until I press pause and then play again.
However when I run xmms or xine as root it works great.

In the kde sound system setup there are a couple options to try.
One is increasing the buffer size. The second is to run the sound server in real time priority. I think the sound systems runs effectively as root then.
