Well, over 14.4 kbps I'm not surprized that audio drops out :-), but even
56 kbps isn't enough to guarantee high-quality audio. I noticed drop-out
at 128 kpbs, especially when a co-worker selfishly attempted to use the
local Ethernet for real work!

I'm not sure I consider what you're seeing to be a problem, unless it's
completely different behaviour than what you see when you're connected to
any other reflector, listening to audio and video at the same time.
