What are you using as your input signal?  How's the level/gain?  What
is the avg peak signal level you are seeing from the USRP?  What
decimation rate are you using?  Are you running some kind of symbol
tracking algorithm?

Yes.   I've run the gsmk2 code at 500k bit/sec with no FEC and no
errors for many (10's ?) seconds at a time.

You're building from CVS, right?  There was a xrun reporting
problem that was fixed a couple of months ago.

Yes, they are sticky.  They are checked and cleared at about 10 Hz.
