It uses ALSA. If you need anything else let me now.

Try installing Pulse Audio.

At least for me, removing Pulse Audio does fix the issue.  With ALSA all is fine.  As the submitter doesn't appear to know whether he's using PA, he probably is as that's the default for most distributions.

But then, the workaround is broken by #1247056...
