Sorry, I should have followed up on this list ...

Tom (in the CC line) opened a bug with Jabra, and they have issued a
firmware update.  Unfortunately this update requires some Windows
software to run.  I applied this, and it does appear to fix the audio
playback problem, though curiously it doesn't completely fix the
ENDPOINT/CS_ENDPOINT problem, so who knows what's really going on

Anyway, should you want the update it is here:


Thanks Tom!
