After rebooting:
- Skype hangs on "Signing in..."
- Empathy freezes
- X-Chat-Gnome hangs for 30+ seconds each time someone mentions my name (w/ sound alerts on)
- when I try to watch videos on Firefox OR Chrome, flash freezes and eventually quits
- when I launch Last.fm (native player), I get "The ALSA soundsystem is either busy or not present."
- "Sound Settings" shows no sound hardware available.

Oddly, some sounds still work (usually alerts) but only sometimes.  I'm
gussing that if ALSA is fixed, everything else will fall into place
here.

Here's a dump from the ALSA information script:
