Ok, then the bug is in handling of polling mode in this particular chip.
After such switch to polling mode, applications will get stuck on
releasing the soundcard. Another symptom I forgot to describe is that
the last ~100ms of output will keep repeating when I pause/stop
playback, one has to mute the volume to get rid of this. Again, this
starts happenning only sometimes after the switch to polling mode,
but then keeps happenning fairly consistently.
