well, i suppose, i am the only user of this driver anyway (at least nobody 
experienced this issue, which i have been seen on multiple machines). doing some 
more tests yesteday evening, it seems that this patch fixes the startup issue 
only in about 90% of all cases. my guess is that it is some kind of timing issue 
in the communication between driver and microcontroller. most likely because 
playback and capture devices are started separately.

unfortunately, the error code reported by the uc is not specified in the

will prepare a separate patch, when i am back in the studio ...
