Anything, external speaker, headphones with or without mic. When I plug
something, the noise from the speaker just stops.

I just discoveredtThere's an exception: if a jack is plugged, and if I
set "Auto-Mute mode" to "disabled" in alsamixer the noise can be heared.
If I set "Auto-Mute mode" back to "enabled", no more noise.

Never. It's really only the integrated speakers emitting something.

I think I forgot to say, I'm running Linux 3.5 indeed. I've tried
3.6-rc1 a couple of weeks ago, and it didn't help. But I'd try rc6 if it
has changes that can be related. :)

Thanks for your help!
