Native play function slows down emacs on RH 7.3

I found this initially with the latest 21 pretest, but on further
checking , the problems appears to be present on the 21.2.1 
build bundled by Redhat 7.3.

If you use the built-in play-sound function, 
things feel  slower than when using (shell-command "play "...)

It's hard to articulate the "feel slower" bit --
but at least when I switched emacspeak to start using play-sound,
the rest of emacs felt sluggish.
