I have this exact same issue, it's really weird. It doesn't matter what I am playing audio from, I always get an ~second long skip after 2 or 3 minutes. I was hoping the latest update would fix it but I guess not. On the other hand I have kind of gotten used to it and it doesn't bother me as much as it once did. It's good to know that it's not just me though, maybe they'll fix it in their next update.
