Well - it does seem that my sound hardware may be (at least partly)  
at fault for my problems... I have been building sugar on another  
(older, even lower spec) box. That build finally finished, and I  
copied the TamTam-35.xo compressed bundle I made for the original box  
onto that and installed it.

Well, on this second box, TamTam runs without background buzzing and  
clicks, and when I exit it, it actually terminates cleanly. I can  
even restart it without it hanging up.

So... I guess I have to assume the sound hardware on the first box is  
causing difficulties...
And in the meantime I have a platform (albeit v.slow!) I can move  
forward with... I wonder if the first box would be happier with my  
old iMic as a sound card?

Thanks to everyone who has helped with suggestions,
