Whenever I hear a sound in Gaim, the sound loops over and over. This looping continues until I move my USB mouse. Weirdness.
I have an ATI sound card (atiixp) using Alsa drivers on IRQ 10
a NEC OHCI-compatable USB controller on IRQ 10
a ATI OHCI-compatable USB controller on IRQ 11
Occurs even when USB mouse is not plugged in - must plug in mouse to stop looping
I have tried this on kernel 2.6.8-mm4 and just today on 2.6.9 (need newer kernel for sound driver)
Have tried having USB drivers compiled in, module, and removed entirely - no change (actually, I cannot stop sound from looping whithout USB drivers!)
Have tried on multiple versions of Gaim
Arts and ESD exhibit the same behavior, although running these makes xmms loop as well
Slackware 10, slapt-get --upgrade to slackware-current
Any ideas on what I can do?
