Ok, so that pretty much rules out the host controller. I just wonder why
I still don't see it here, and I haven't heard of any such problem from
anyone else.

Some more questions:

- Which version of Flash are you running?
- Does this also happen with Firefox?
- Does flash access the device directly or via PulseAudio?
- Could you please apply the attached patch and see what it spits out to
dmesg once Flash opens the device? It returns -EINVAL in the hw_params
callback to prevent the actual streaming. On my machine with Flash, I get values of 2/44800/1/32768/2048/0, which seems sane.
Or does your machine still crash before anything is written to the logs?

When exactly does the crash happen? Right after you selected that entry
from the list? There's a little recording level meter in that dialog.
Does that show any input from the microphone?

We'll see. Thanks for your help to sort this out!
