It's not limited to moving an Ardour window component.  When Ardour is
playing, scrolling up/down a firefox window will do the same.
Actually in firefox, pressing home/end on a long web page will do the
same crackling noise in Ardour's output but, only for a few times.
After which pressing home/end will not make any further noise.  As if
something graphically gets buffered and during that buffering time
resources are taken which influences the rendering of audio.  Once the
'buffering' is done, then the audio plays without any crackles.  Or
something akin to that.
