Are you using the binary NVIDIA graphics drivers? I had similar problems
with those and kernel 2.6.
Everytime the window focus switched, there was a lock debugging message
with a stracktrace in the
system log and there was a good chance that you'd get an xrun.
I had less problems with xruns using the nv driver provided by XFree.
