Please accept my sincere apologies. The error was resolved by rebooting (by 
accident) after I installed standalone ALSA drivers (version: ) as opposed 
the one shipped in linux (..). Of course I did update the drivers before 
bothering the list, but obviously rmmod for all snd_* kernel modules and then 
modprobing the new ones is something different than a clean reboot.


P.S.: Checking for memory allocation errors would be nice!
