Well, after things have settled down (see below) it's only using about 10% of 
CPU, about 5% each for making audio devices available to the network and for 
using audio devices from the network.  I do like being able to push audio from 
the machine I mainly work at to other machines around the network where I might 
go to temporarily.

This didn't resolve the issue...

But this did.

Given that this was the solution in Karmic too, I'm wondering why, whatever 
installing this packages fixes, didn't make it into Lucid.  It's frustrating
to have to have to piece together a working distribution from various places, 
release after release.  But I digress.

Indeed, and handled nicely (i.e. properly) by the packages' metadata.  Very 
nicely done.
