Ok, I tried using Audacity in Windows Me, and there was no problems with 
recording the second channel.  Also, I found error messages about ALSA 
buffer xruns in the logs.  So, I'm guessing that the number of buffer 
periods needs to be increased, which, granted, also increases latency, 
but I don't have a choice considering that the recording gets all 
screwed up while playing back other tracks.  If anyone has any other 
ideas, please let me know.
