You're catching on, Basil. With me it's a personal vendetta with
Logitech. But, I bet if you flew me down under I could get pulseaudio
working on your machine. That's the diff, one is busted, the other
(pulse) has hope. <grins> Ric

p/s save the price of my airfare... do a backup of important stuff (but
NOT your ~/ dot-files, and do a clean/fresh install. I'd bet pulse would
work like a charm for you. (as it does for me <smirks)
