    Hi Jeff,

    Somewhere between v1.1.8 and 1.1.10 (I haven't tried 1.1.9), the output
    quality has degraded noticeably. The first thing I noticed was a
    horrendous squeal when starting X: ESD/Enlightenment w/sound enabled
    theme. Possible feedback? May have to try with the mic unplugged. Any-
    way, this theme uses audible clicks when moving between windows. With
    versions .10 .12 .14; instead of click click click..., I get more of a
    click kheh heh heh heck click...... If I have pcm music playing all the
    time, the themed audio events all seem to work correctly. Acts like
    not playing the buffers completely through otherwise. Also, playing
    music with these versions indicates a tad more background noise, kinda
    like tape hiss. Haven't had the time to see what changed in the source.

    GCC: 2.95.2

    Thanks for the driver, by the way.
