I've seen another with exactly this problem.  I'm too tired to bother at the 
moment, and I don't quite remember the details.  There should be a thread on 
the rosegarden-user or rosegarden-devel mailing list detailing the plight of 
Richard Cooper, I think it was.  He eventually solved his problem by building 
a hardware synth out of junk.  There's a Youtube video showing the thing in 
action.  It was amazing, but I don't think he ever got Linux audio and the 
NVIDIA drivers to play nice with each other.  He probably wound up using the 
free driver with broken 3D support.
