I've got a good thread going on Launchpad, and from the log files it 
appears to be a problem with pulseaudio that came about after updates to 
several modules on the 6th of this month, as that is when the problems 
came about.

I'm suspecting some video chip updates for AMD video chips, as although 
I have an AMD 3400+ cpu in this box, all of the mother board chips are 
nvidia, from the onboard video to the network, etc...

Later, Ray Parrish
