Do you think they are both PA bugs, or could the second one be
hardware limitation of my old soundcard?

The Droplinegnome devs probably decided to use PA 0.9.14 so they
didn't need to upgrade the original libtool (and others). They try to
upgrade a minimum of original Slackware packages.

Thanks for your reply. I will see if I can upgrade to 0.9.21 without
to many issues.
