Flash audio stutters on video collaboration websites

How to reproduce:

Start Firefox 3.5.3
go to http://tinychat.com
enter any chatroom with a live video stream

In the "sound preference dialog" in the "applications" tab there are
some ALSA plug-in [firefox] entries, of which the last one flickers as the sound stutters.

If you switch the device profile, in the in the "hardware" section of
the "sound preference" dialog, to some other setting and then switch
back, the stuttering disappears for a few seconds.

Opera 9.64 for Linux has the same issue. However on Windows the firefox
works fine.

I also tried to work arround this bug by starting firefox with OSS:
FIREFOX_DSP="aoss" firefox
or aoss firefox
but that approach seems to be outdated and did not work.

I have a 64bit installation. It would be nice if somebody could confirm this on 32bit.
Please tell me, whether you need any more information.
