I am having this strange problem. I recently upgraded a laptop running
Debian Unstable and a dektop running Debian Testing. Both machines now
have a faulty Gnome session sounds(login sound, logout sound, system
sounds). The sounds seem to crackle (as if there is static in them or as
if they sound hoarse). If I run KDE though, all sounds are clean.
Chromium and ppracer both have clean sounds. Is anybody else facing this
problem? Both machines are running 2.6.11 kernel.
