Hmm, can you figure out which card is the one where suspend fails? Is that the creative card?
Could you please get me a full "pulseaudio -vvvv" output when this happens?
Hmm, are you running PA with tsched=0? If you set that to 1, does the fix the prob?
Ok, maaged to track this down. Will commit fix shortly.
Fix is now building in koji.
