Yeah it is an issue that's inherent to Android. I've used a myTouch 3G in the past and the problem is significantly worse on that phone and I witnessed complex webpages causing the music playback to stutter quite a bit. On the Droid I've noticed some small slight dropouts while doing certain activities (bringing up the virtual keyboard while playing back music can cause this), but a far cry from the major stuttering I had on an Android 1.5 myTouch. I think the real problem is media player just isn't very optimized and is very sensitive to what's going on in the background, this shouldn't happen at all, Google needs to step it up with the multimedia capabilities of Android. The Droid is an amazing web browsing device but I think that music player leaves much to be desired.
