So...

The sound test failed when I had rhythmbox running. 

Aside from that, the usage model seems very strange.

1) I'm supposed to pick a PCM device and know what the difference is
   between:
   
   Intel 82801DB-ICH4
   Intel 82801DB-ICH4 - MIC ADC
   Intel 82801DB-ICH4 - MIC2 ADC
   Intel 82801DB-ICH4 - ADC2
   Intel 82801DB-ICH4 - IEC958
  
   intuitively? (Moreover, I'm asked to do this in two different places.)

2) I can choose to have no default audio card. Not sure that makes sense.

3) How is the user supposed to know whether to use kudzu, /proc, or HAL
   detection? Why are they even *given* a choice???

I'm failing to see what sort of usage case this is solving. Surely this
should all just work?

(I note we have a completely different Sound preference anyway, which is
somewhat simpler.)
