On Linux, I have noticed that this happens when sound is being used by
another program. I have Squeak configured so that it tries to make
sounds when you delete morphs using the halos... but it seems that
everytime it tries to grab /dev/dsp it takes a long time to figure out
it's being used. And yes, ~500-700ms, even slower, on a pentium III/600.
