Weird.  I am running 2.6.7 stock, and thus have ALSA 1.0.4.  2.6.9 has
1.0.6, which sounds problematic.  I suppose I could try disabling
sound and see what the picture does.  Do you have any more info on
what the specific problem was?  Could it be related to sample rates or
something like that?

Thanks AGAIN,
