I cannot really guess what is going on, but I had these kind of problems 
almost invariably when NSLU did not have enough cycles.  Have a look if 
there are any services that you could switch off.

Are you playing to this PA remotely or via a link between your local 
pulseaudio and the one on NSLU?  The latter setup I never got to work.  I 
either get clicks or it falls back to the local audiocard on the notebook 
after several seconds.
