Hmm, what is the output of:

As supposed in /proc/asound/version, the _driver_ version is
# apt-get install alsa-source
Follow the instructions in /usr/share/doc/alsa-source/README.Debian
for installing drivers of version 1.0.19. The drivers are either
distributed by the kernel or are provided by compiling them as
described in README.Debian.
Excellent day for drinking heavily.
Spike the office water cooler;-)
