Can you try out one of the SDL demos that comes with SDL source, or
perhaps another game (most of mine listed at
http://www.newbreedsoftware.com/linux/ use SDL and are widely packaged,
e.g., 'Defendguin' or 'Circus Linux!'). Of course, best to try something
I wasn't involved in, to make sure it's not something _I_ am in a habit
of doing that's causing this.

If other SDL apps are exhibiting the same problems, we should move this to an
SDL bug. At that point, it may end up being a Linux sound driver bug,
or not, but we should try and figure out if it's an app-level issue or not.
(It's looking like: not :^) )

Thanks again,
