Comment 6 for bug 301174

I am seeing this problem on Jaunty, and it is *EXTREMELY* annoying (even more annoying than people who feel the need to write in all caps). I'm surprised my ear drums have not burst yet (I'm not kidding). This sound is what I imagine I would hear if I were to stick my tongue into a 240V socket, except that might hurt less.

This same laptop worked fine with Intrepid and Hardy. All other sound seems to work, but I don't dare use it for fear the system might decide to beep. Please let me know what information might be useful.
