I am sorry, I cannot answer your question. But I guess PA is not
responsible for that and this should be ALSA’s responsibility.

1. Did you report that issue to the alsa-devel list [1][2]?
2. Your issue is from September 2008. What ALSA version did you use back
then and what version do you use now?
3. Have you tried more recent ALSA versions? I think a lot of fixes have
been made.
4. Since you have an ASUS system there might be a better value for
5. If nothing helps and the problem is still present, maybe HDA-Analyzer
[3] can help you to fix it correctly.
