Source: gsequencer
Version: 0.7.122-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

The soundcard output is affected by a data-race. While clearing the output buffer, a data
race is possible. Resulting in corrupted audio export or playback. The possibility of
an application crash exists.
The clearing of the buffer should occur as a task. In order to run asynchronous exclusively.
