I've always had 'Glitch Free' mode disabled after our conversation on
this when in happened in 2010.0. I've reported this to the alsa-dev list
and the only one who responded way Raymond Yau who, as before, replied
with I need to run pulseaudio -k ; pulseaudio -vvvvv. I've done that and
have a bzip2 file of 9k, was 129k. I don't know what to do with the log
file now though. Is this a Mandriva issue?
