Maybe it's your sound card.  I know that my crap laptop sound card 
definitely responds to keyboard, mouse, and cpu activity.  Maybe though 
it's some kind of audio buffer problem.  What happens to audio if you 
don't run X?

Best way in theory to troubleshoot is to divide the problem in half by 
taking away half of the pieces, and iterate until you find it.  In 
practice it can be hard to determine where "half" is.  Try no X :)
