I haven't been able to reproduce this bug. And as ALSA API is constantly
changing, it's hard to pinpoint the real source of problems (ecasound,
ALSA, lowlevel drivers, kernel, libc, etc). I'm currently a bit busy,
but I'll to find out what's behind this. Before that, all I can just
encourage you to test various combinations of ALSA versions (native,
OSS-emulation), buffersizes, other apps, etc and see what you come up

This sounds odd as ALSA devices aren't related to physical connectors.
Everything dealing with signal levels and selection of the input source,
is handled with mixer apps.

Doh, I thought I had removed all references to the old ALSA option
syntax. Good that you noticed this. ;)
