Public bug report changed:

I'm having this problem as well... and it's not Rhythmbox or mplayer...
something is wrong with ALSA and USB sound. I removed my Soundblaster
Audigy and reinstalled Dapper with my only sound device being my USB
Griffin iMic "Soundcard" which works fine under Windows on the same
machine. It appears to be properly detected as everything shows it
listed as my sound device but nothing, including Gnome (gnome sounds) is
able to access it and I always see the same errors I see in other
reports above: "unable to set hw-parameters: Broken pipe"
