There is some issue with the pulse plug-in for ALSA that causes speaker-test (a
test tool, part of ALSA) to fail:
We should probably have a look at it in case it affects other applications.
ALSA's code is _really_ hard to follow. After an entire afternoon of unraveling
ALSA's parameter refinement system, I finally found the problem.
The code is too messy for me to see an obvious fix, but I've reported what the
problem is upstream. Hopefully they can do a fix.
Works fine with current versions of ALSA.

How boring. But works.
