Huge Slow down on boot and then starting a DL

Right after I installed the most recent Alsa sound drivers for my SB live card (because I was having problems with my sound after upgrading with swaret) I have started to notice dramatic slow-downs when Xwindows first starts and whenever I use kget (in Konquerer) to download something. Each time the slowdown starts, it last for about 30 seconds to a minute. Half the time, I get a pup-up that says "Processor overload: Aborted". The rest of the time, things return to normal without a pop-up. Oh an while checking the "ps"s no other programs I can see start or stop during the time or finish fo the slowdown.

I am running slackware 9.1 on an athlon Xp 2000 system with 512 Megs of ram (so I don't think it has anything to do with the hardware)

I would just reinstall because I could use the experience of configuring everything again, but I am worried I might run into this problem again.

You guys have any suggestions?

[Edit] Problem solved by downgrading to Alsa's 1.0.0-rc2 driver from the 1.0.1 driver.
