Sounds like your belt is a little loose. Its okay to get a few clicks on full brake but if it is excessive than just tighten it up a little.

When you take off the gear cover on the top, there should be around 1/8" of play in the belt when you push down on it. The belt will still skip. It's part of the design, so don't worry about it.

I don't think you should hear it under accel. though, only under braking.
