The problem was that it had a hick-up every time I moved a window.

First, you might want to try Kaboodle to make sure that it isn't a Juk issue.
I found that $KDEDIR/bin/artswrapper is not installed SUID, you need to [as
root] make that change by hand. See if that helps.
In the Sound System KCM, on the General tab, enable:
Run with the highest priority (realtime priority)
Then on the Hardware tab "Select the audio device" yourself rather than leaving
Then kill all instances of: "artsd" so that it will restart.
Or, try [as root]:
renice -10 `pidof artsd`
and see if that improves things.
