Description Uno Engborg 2009-08-14 07:44:40 EDT
Description of problem:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.29.6-217.2.3.fc11.i686.PAE

How reproducible:
Very, it typically happens if you try to play a sound that is five minutes or longer. E.g  viewing a flash video.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the video at:
http://www.netbeans.org/kb/docs/web/js-debugger-screencast.html (you will probably have to have Adobe flash installed, first)

  
Actual results:
Sound is fine the first few minutes, but after a while the sound disappears

Expected results:
Sound all the way

Additional info:

My /var/log/messages gets the following error messages when I try to play the video in the URL above:

I can confirm this happening always on Thinkpad X41. FC11, i386. Smolt config is: http://smolt.fedoraproject.org/client/show_all/pub_8df756f2-4ca4-42bb-9211-7464d4ca36e4
