That's a known kernel bug in 2.0.35.

I don't know the status of 2.0.36 on Alpha, but if you get the first
pre-patch to 2.0.36 (which fixes the beep problem and doesn't change much
else), you should be able to alpha-patch this kernel and compile and use

You can find this patch at

Another solution (if you are brave :) ) is to upgrade to a recent
developer kernel. 2.0.129+ worked for me very well, but as you can read on
this list YMMV.
