Have you tried the CHU audio driver?  My experience was that if CHU was 
putting in a decent signal, I often got better performance from it than 
the WWV driver.  Actually, for me, the CHU driver worked while the WWV 
driver did not.  The best I ever got from WWV was the date and part of 
the time code.  Since the CHU driver samples less often, I suspect it's 
less sensitive to buggy drivers or hardware.  My gut feeling is that 
sound drivers in Linux were never designed with WWV or any precise 
timekeeping in mind, but only playing and recording sounds without 
breaking up.
