As a first try, I tried a 2.6.10 kernel (alsa 1.0.6) coupled with 1.0.6 
lib and utils but the problem is present there as well. Which is fairly 
odd, since I have a significantly more recently captured source which is 
fine; I guess I _might_ have had a cs46xx card installed then...

I described the problem as a "stutter" but maybe that's not the best 
description; it's a "ticking" sound behind/over the actual captured 
sound. It's hard to hear if the sound is correct other than that; if I 
keep the "Capture" control at 0 dB, it's very soft and when I start 
upping it, it starts distorting (which doesn't surprise me; I keep chip 
gains at max 0 dB almost religiously since they all distort).

With this one the sound's so distorted at max gain it's almost turned 
into white noise though. Mmm, I'll try on windows again (where as said 
the capture's okay) if that's actually expected...
