I have it running now, and it feels much better. (gc) still triggers a 
glip in the sound though, but thats to be expected.

But the good things are (with snd_conffils.scm loaded):

* I don't hear any glips in the sound using a dac-size of 64. Can't 
  remember that ever working before. Even a dac-size of 1 almost works.

* When changing the range, there is no sign of the graphics now and then 
  lagging behind. I have never seen that before.

However, I need to run a test with the normal guile 1.9 as well. It might 
not be because of the Boehm GC, but I think so. I'll report back in case 
it wasn't the new GC.

I'm thinking about releasing a new version of snd-ls with embedded guile + 
boehm gc patch. It'll be a monster package, but snd feels so nice now that 
I might do it.
