sound problem with Commodo firewall free x64 when running utorrent [Issue Rep.]

The bug/issue

  1. What you did: run utorrent for more than 30 hours without interruption
  2. What actually happened or you actually saw: sound in all programs started stuttering (more and more as running time increases)
  3. What you expected to happen or see: no sound problems
  4. How you tried to fix it & what happened: restarting utorrent temporarily fixes the problem (until another day or so passes)
  5. If its an application compatibility problem have you tried the application fixes here?: yes
  6. Details & exact version of any application (execpt CIS) involved with download link: utorrent 2.2.1 build 25130 (same thing happens with older builds, as far back as I remember)
  7. Whether you can make the problem happen again, and if so exact steps to make it happen: happens everytime if utorrent runs continuously for too long (over 1 day). Running more torrents simultaneously (or maybe allowing more simultaneous connections? I have set the utorrent limit to 200) increases/hastens the problem
  8. Any other information (eg your guess regarding the cause, with reasons): had similar problems with avastIS (also 64bit I think) but not with windows firewall or online armor or kasperskyIS (all 32bit, I think)
