AFAIK it only occurs on some drivers, or occured as I don't know if it's fixed yet. There was quite long thread about it less than six months ago.

Yeah, I had even looked it up on the archives just to make sure that I wasn't just talking out my arse. :-)


If I'm not mistaken the hardware could only do
one sampling rate and the driver didn't support on-the-fly resampling.
One could use for example mplayer's resampling as a workaround.

Like I said, I've never had any issues playing music.  Perhaps I've
just been lucky and have never had to use the driver in question.
The only time I've had issues is when the application that I was
using had issues (ie. ogg123, mpg123/321, xmms, etc...), but that
doesn't happen too often either.

PS. Correct me if I'm totally wrong :-)

Can't comment, you probably know more than I do about that.  :-)
