So the good news : the problem seems to be resolved with a different
audio driver. Here what's working (so far) on my system : jack, pulse, sdl.

Below are some answers to your other questions.

Yes, and the following tests were made on an empty configuration files.

Yes, same issue.

With 'Esc'.

Only alsa seems to have a problem.

I ran the tests on a "clean" system, that is, without any ALSA processes
running in my knowledge. If you know how to check that, please tell me.

Pulseaudio is actually running so there may be a configuration issuse somewhere.

So I'm using pulse as a solution, but if you have any pointer on how to
find the issue, I would be glad to hear it.
