It could be the newer alsa. You could try the "original" alsa in one of
two ways:

a) erase the kernel-m-dule-alsa-`uname -r` package (you most probably
would have to do it --nodeps and then fix the dependencies when you are
done with a apt-get -f install. 

b) move the /lib/modules/`uname -r`/updates/ directory temporarily
somewhere else (for example to /root)

After either of the above do:
/sbin/depmod -a
and restart alsa. You will probably have to logout of the gnome panel
volume control will be killed. The remaining alsa modules will be the
ones that come with the kernel sources (you can verify that by looking
at /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/, if there is an xrun_debug file there it is
the new alsa, if there is no xrun_debug it is the one that comes with
the kernel). 

After you are done testing either reinstall alsa or move the updates
directory back (and do a /sbin/depmod -a and restart alsa)
