Some answers, at least. I'm running F10 with everything up to date.
(FWIW, I couldn't get sound recorder to work at all in F9.) Newish
desktop, sound card integrated (ICH5) - nothing special.
Yes, I have looked for similar bugs but can't find anything useful.
(Some reports of crashes or high CPU usage but nothing like the
stuttering effect.) The Gnome-media site says the sound recorder uses
OSS or ALSA but in F10 it is certainly linked to Pulse Audio, because
the PA volume control has a "recording" tab which shows
gnome-sound-recorder when it is recording.
Audacity 1.3.4 (but it wasn't involved in the latest breakdown)
