Package: gstreamer0.10-alsa
Version: 0.10.14-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

While playing music with rhythmbox I get some noise (like the a cut in electricity circuit or a small hit in the speakers), the problem isn't reproducible with xmms. But when I play with:
gst-launch filesrc location=/path/to/mp3file ! mad ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! alsasink
I get the noise, then when I change te last part to osssink, I don't get that problem.
I have two sound cards:
01:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy (rev 04)
00:06.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP55 High Definition Audio (rev a2)

Both of them show the problem.
My system was configured to use alsa as output, now that I use OSS I don't have that problem (I have others but not that).
