Both songs played + lots of crackling.

Additional info:
If I play both songs using hardware mixing on my E-mu 1212m card, it works normally.

There is additional information in this mailing list thread: https://tango.0pointer.de/pipermail/pulseaudio-discuss/2008-September/002374.html

However, it isn't specific to HDA. Happens with other cards too.

play something with "padsp realplay", pause it, then continue, you will hear some a fierce noise. Is this a same problem or not?
