This is most likely because we are currently lopping back audio through 127.0.0.1: https://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/content/media/webrtc/MediaEngineWebRTCAudio.cpp#92

This may also be able to be fixed with the new pull code for MediaStreams in bug 771135.

I've been using gUM on Windows 7 for quite some time now and have yet to see this issue. I'm going to close this now, but if someone sees this again, feel free to reopen.

Should say "yet to see this issue more recently within the past few months"
I can confirm I fixed this (on another bug) months ago; we don't loop through 127.0.0.1 anymore.
