[Banshee-List] Audio CD playback grossly choppy

I've encountered threads on similar topics, but none that directly deals with
this problem and includes a fix. So, here goes: 

Banshee (and Rhythmbox) plays an audio CD for 16 s, freezes for about 12 s,
runs ahead, freezes again, etc. Top does not reveal huge cpu usage by
Banshee or related processes.  Other features of Banshee seem to work fine.
IBM Thinkpad 600E, Fedora 10, kernel,
banshee-1.4.2-4.fc10.i386, pulseaudio removed, ALSA selected as the
preferred playback method.  This behaviour is similar to that of mplayer/OSS
playing an audio CD with the cache set too small. Audio CDs play fine under
Grip. Rhythmbox used to work fine on this machine in the Fedora 8 era.
/var/log/messages reveals nothing.

Any ideas? Can a user adjust the size of the cache used by Banshee? Is this
a gstreamer issue?

Thanks for considering this problem.
