$ ls ~/.asoundrc
ls: /home/august/.asoundrc: No such file or directory
$ ls /etc/asound.conf
ls: /etc/asound.conf: No such file or directory

No I didn't (didn't know i should). When I did that and rebooted the
login time decreased dramatically and the standard GNOME applications is
much more responsive. What a difference! System sounds should really
have been disabled by default.
If I now choose OSS both as source and sink everything seems to work
except the source test that fails with the same error message as before.
I'm glad that it now works, but I would really like to use the more
modern ALSA driver.

Yes, but what configuration file?
By the way, my setup is (far from obscure)
Motherboard: Asus A7N8X-X
Processor: AMD XP 2500+
Memory: 512 MB
Sound Card: Audiophile 24/96
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon 9600 Pro
Thanks for your help,
