Yeah, well, but maybe it does not crash :-) ;-) :-) You could also try
to disable X acceleration but then the display will be slow.

Yes, I mentioned it so that you don't think you are the only one.

I'm working on newer alsa drivers independently of the kernel. I have no
idea on when the new kernel will be out. Soon, hopefully, the latest is
2.4.22-rc2. I tried building a test rpm but the latency and preemption
patches do not apply cleanly so I'll have to redo them by hand (they are
diverging from the code base as there have been no new "official"
releases that I know off).
