::- 	When I typically start a level either through instant action or 
::-online, the sound seems to stutter a bit and the framerate is very
::-until I have "looked around" and seen most of the new
environment (and  
::-possibly the textures?).  I'm guessing that some
caching must be going on  
::-which is causing this latency.  Has anyone else run into this
problem? I  
::-typically play Onslaught maps but I've noticed this to a
lesser extent on   ::-Assault and deathmath maps.
::-Linux ut2004 patch 3339 
::-Debian Linux testing (3.1)
::-Stock 2.6.10 kernel
::-Alsa sound modules
::-Latest NVIDIA driver (can't remember version)
::-P4 2.4 GHz
::-ASUS P4P800 Deluxe motherboard (onboard sound hardware)
::-1 Gig RAM
::-MSI GeForce4 4800 SE graphics card

It is possible that the various 'UsePrecaching' settings in the
./System/UT2004.ini got set to false.  While this is unlikely because
the default is true, still worth looking into.
