What does it mean for an alsa driver to crash? I understand "crashing" as
sudden termination of a process, and the alsa driver is not a process.

Also, how does the music player crash? When starting it in a terminal, does the
shell print "Killed" at the end of the console output? If it prints "Killed",
then it sounds similar to what happens Pulseaudio, and it's then more likely be
the same bug, but either way, I can't say anything certain.
