SOLVED.  I hope this helps someone else avoid going through this process in the future.

Here's what I did:

	 Compiled custom kernel with -ck1 patchset including BFS scheduler to replace CFS.

	 Configuration changes: enabled PREEMPT, upped polling from 100Hz to 1000Hz, disabled dynamic ticks

Not only is the stuttering problem solved, but I feel like I have a completely different desktop.  Everything is much snappier - much quicker than Windows.  After setting the SCHED_IDLEPRIO flag on F at H, it is completely unnoticeable no matter what else I run.  This is how a desktop should be.  The only downside is that the system uses about 20% more power at idle (without CnQ + C1E).  However, since I fold 24/7, it's never idle anyway.
