I can't reproduce your bug. I am running PPC(aoa-tas) I386(cmi8330,
emu10k1 and ens1371) with absolutely no problems. There is one thing
you can check before I have to forward your bug upstream:

Build your drivers from alsa-source_1.0.12 and retry. But this
should not be relevant. Let us know which your soundcard is:
$ lspci | grep -i multi


  You cannot propel yourself forward by
  patting yourself on the back.
