Bug Description

After upgrading Audacious to version 3.4 from Webupd8 ppa, with ALSA output I cannot obtain gapless playing anymore: a gap appears now at the end of every track.
I also noticed that the larger is the buffer, the more the gap's lenght increases. With the default buffer of 500 ms the gap is about a second or less; with greater buffers, it's about several seconds.
Switching to PulseAudio output, the issue disappears at all!

I'm running Audacious on Ubuntu 13.04 with 64 bit architecture.

do you mean alsa-pulse plugin since maximum buffer size of snd-hda-intel driver in 13.04 is 64Kbytes (0.375 second) ?

cat /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/sub0/prealloc

But... I configured Audacious tou use ALSA bypassing PulseAudio and sending the output directly to the soundcard. Why alsa-pulse?
