Nope... very very hard to see how this can be Samba.  Breakups and gaps and 
pauses could be Samba easy enough, but Samba just delivers the requested 
data, hopefully on time, it doesn't determine the speed that stuff is shunted 
to the output device.

Sounds more like the kernel timer is set wrong on your machine, or there is a 
problem with the audio device clock rate?

Mplayer lets you specify the master clock source IIRC, why not start it in a 
terminal playing something that doesn't work right and look for something 
early on like

Using usleep() timing

or stuff about /dev/rtc.
