This is a new pulseaudio package, not sure if this is the full patch but it should solve stuttering.

For some reason, it does NOT work on the stock kernel, you'll need to install kernel-power.

Doing some tests yesterday it didn't stutter, today it did, so I'm not sure if it's working or not, so I'll release this to the community and leave you to decide.

Packages available here, download all.tar.gz and install all packages except the -dev package.

To pin the package (so it won't be upgraded by apt-get upgrade):
for x in pulseaudio libpulse-mainloop-glib0 libpulse0 pulseaudio-esound-compat pulseaudio-module-bluetooth pulseaudio-module-extra pulseaudio-module-gconf pulseaudio-module-hal pulseaudio-module-x11 pulseaudio-utils
do echo -e "Package: $x
Pin: release a=unstable 
Pin-Priority: 1001\n" >> /etc/apt/preferences
Need some feedback, this is not a perfect fix, it just seems to reduce stuttering.

Installs ok, playing a internet radio stream and browsing with MicroB doesn't cause any stuttering. I have not tried any FLAC files though(they stuttered with the old PulseAudio, not sure about the new one).

all.tar.gz is corrupted. However installed the packages one at a time - pulseaudio-dev gives dependency errors so removed. Can confirm it seems to fix the stuttering and I could be crazy but also seems louder...

Just reading the developer's changelog brought a big smile to my face, and I wasn't disappointed! MohammadAG, the stuttering has literally disappeared when using the media widget right after startup, and when playing FLACs. These account for most of the recurring stutter I've experienced.

Your packaging these latest versions of N900 system software has literally solved my worst issues with this device. Between this, hildon-desktop, and your transitions.ini, it's made a world of difference! Thanks for going out of your way to prepare these debs.
