Oh dear, it confirms my original feeling... the whole sound thing in
Linux is a huge mega horrible mess ! :-/
I hope that in the future, it will be much simpler and will "just work".
In the meantime, I will consider myself lucky that the few programs I
use that play sounds (X-Plane, XawTV, Rhythmbox, Totem) work fine.
