You mentioned three applications exhibiting this problem, it is
unlikely that they all have similar bugs. Check out the common
components, which are
o your client hardware
o your client's kernel (sound or smbfs subsystem)
Network and servers can be outruled, if you switched them and if using
a Windows client does not exhibit this.

You mentioned rising the buffers which even made things worse. It
would had been the other way.
If you can use another (Linux) client with different hardware and
sound drivers. If it stops, you know where to look, if not, then it's
harder to continue diagnosis, as you will have swapped all parts.
