Thanks for the pointer.  Just to follow up: I'm using Debian Woody
3.0r1 (stable) with a 2.4.18 kernel.  For other reasons (hyper-
threading awareness), I downloaded the 2.4.20 .deb kernel sources
and rebuilt the kernel.  It's faster, and now I can sample at 44.1kHz
no problem.  I haven't done the diffs to find out if there were
