Its not causing any problems. Playback *seems* to be less smooth
for me 0.20 compared to 0.19 and I was investigating this when I
noticed it. I have an MSI K7T266/ Athlon-XP 1600+ with a VIA chipset.
These seem to have far less PCI bandwidth than other chipsets and I was
wondering if having unnecessary background tasks would affect playback
