My gut reaction is: what else is that line being used for? 56 kbps is
close enough to the approx 32 kbps need of audio alone, that I wonder
whether a small amount of video signal will be enough to cramp that 32
kbps. Your comment about the sound getting worse as more windows are
opened reinforces my total-bandwidth idea.
