Looks/sounds like same thing.  I chimed in on the bug, so hopefully find
the problem real quick like.

Good, hope it gets it, cuz dat thang is *ugly* hehe.

Hrm, guess there *might* be one more thing, but this was in F8 and maybe
it's in F9.  I have onboard sound (AC97?) and a SB Audigy pci card.  I
use the SB card for main sound.  So currently usually it's ac97 for
card1 and SB for card0.  Well, pulseaudio detects them that way, but it
keeps putting card1 on top in pulseaudio volume control menu, and making
it default, when it's not.  So I have to move the modules up/down so SB
is 1, detected as that and then it appears and as default.  Otherwise, I
have to manually make it default every time I reboot/login to gnome, so
I can hear sounds, instead of it remembering the setting.  Heh, hope I
explained that right.

Anyway, off to bed, more testing tomorrow and the weekend.
