Most systems like this have startup glitches. The analog hardware is one source, and in your case, it's the
kernels buffer management getting "ramped up". Back in the 1980s, we had to deal with this a lot on
low-speed packet-radio systems layered on top of ordinary analog FM radios. There was no way to make
the radios not glitch on startup, so we simply devised mechanisms to deal with it.
My suggestion is to setup up a *continuous* transmitter graph, and gate-in "real" samples when you need them.
Also, I'd gently suggest that a receiver chain that can't handle the odd glitch isn't much of a receiver chain, in
the signal-processing sense. Radio is analog. It's subject to distortions, glitches, pops, wheezes, snorts and
shudders that are utterly outside of your control. Your receiver has to be able to deal with them, regardless
of whether the source is "natural", or a quirk of the buffer-startup behaviour.
