We found clicky-poppy-loopy-static-y effects on my normal (non-XO) 
laptop when trying to run csound audio.  We 'fixed' it by specifying  
largish buffers (-b2048 -B2048) in our code[1].  From our reading of the 
docs/forums it seems that this kind of system-specific configuration is 
often necessary to get csound to behave (hence having flags on the 
command line for tweaking the values in the standard file-playing 
tool).  I think you can do something similar with a configuration file 
in "normal" csound, but I'm not sure if the python API or TamTam will 
look at that file automatically.
