 This is a followup for Debian bugs <http://bugs.debian.org/324163> and

> alsa output in gstreamer clicks constantly when playing.

 Well, I can't reproduce the problem here, upstream didn't get any
 record of similar breakage, I'm running similar hardware as a
 submitter (Thinkpad T40p, this is Intel Corp. 82801DB/DBL/DBM
 (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 01)).  :-/

 To all of you:
 - are you using dmix?
 - are you sure you're using alsasink and not alsa via esdsink,
   jackdsink, osssink (ALSA emulation), artsdsink?
 - try to reproduce with: gst-launch sinesrc ! alsasink
 - do you have exactly these packages (dpkg -l libasound2
   gstreamer0.8-alsa libgstreamer0.8-0):
   * gstreamer0.8-alsa        0.8.10-3
   * libasound2               1.0.9-3
   * libgstreamer0.8-0        0.8.10-2
 - what kernel versions do you run?  (I have 2.6.12)
 - do you see anything suspicious in "dmesg"?
 - do you confirm that downgrading gstreamer0.8-alsa to 0.8.10-1 or
   0.8.9-2 fixes the issue?

 If all the above doesn't yeld anything suspicious, please try to run
 the above gst-launch command with increasing debug level
 (--gst-debug-level) until you notice something suspicious.
