Ok I have had a quick look at that bug and I have a few questions.

First of all I am running 2.6.31-rt kernel and the bug is said to
affect 2.6.32-rc1
and above is it still possible that it may be the same bug?

How can I fix it? Should I reinstall with ext3 filesystem? will ext3 perform
as well as ext4 for Audio  ?
