No, that still doesn't help. After doing that and rebooting the sound still
plays fine - I assume, directly through ALSA since 'pactl list sink-inputs'
displays nothing. I don't see any devices that would route the signal back to

latency, and we have documented it. Just don't use it if you need a lower
