ALSA sound issue and sdl sound issue

I have two sound issues.  The sound for ALSA on quake2 binary sounds like a 
high pitched machine gun.  I have seen another post on this on Sept 1st 
in the archive:
It sounds like the exact same problem, I was wondering if there was going 
to be a fix soon, or if there is a way to fix this already?

I am also experiencing problems with the sdlquake2 binary, the sounds are all
fine, except for sounds with a lot of bass.  For example the sound when moving
up and down on the menu sounds like crap, it is very delayed, very low pitch
and is elongated.  Is this a problem with the sdl in quake or would that be a 
problem on my part?

By the way: 
My install is via gentoo's portage, I am not running kde (or arts), 
my kernel is vanilla, and my sound card is an intel using the ac97
