It's probably OpenAL-Soft misusing ALSA, or a buggy driver, or both.
We just went through a lot of pain with SDL to get this to work well,
and found a lot of longstanding, non-obvious bugs in our code...but
also found some drivers for perfectly reasonable audio hardware just
simply don't work well.
The OpenAL shipping with Aquaria is a recent snapshot of OpenAL-Soft's
Subversion repository...I'll have to dig into it. It might sense to
just have OpenAL talk directly to that SDL code we just spent all that
