I'm not familiar with the -z:nointbuf but I've had exactly the same noise as you described and I was able to get rid of it with the -b option.
It was tricky though. I stared with -b:64 (didn't work), then I doubled to -b:128 (didn't work). To make a long story short, after doubling for a while, I ended up dropping the number by 100, then by 50... until I narrowed it down to the _exact_ buffer size that stopped the clicking.
It may be different for you, but I think the number that worked for me (at the time) was -b:150.
BTW, they say that the -b option works best with even numbers.
