Thanks for your help!

I pulled the 1.0.20 alsa RPMs out of testing and rebooted.  That didn't
help immediately, but once I removed pulseaudio everything seems
to be working (Mozart's Clarinet Concerto is playing as I type).

Yes, I have an Asus P5Q-VM motherboard.  I didn't think this was that
new -- must be at least a year old now? -- but I guess if the sound
chipsets are changing all the time that's a problem.

I found this overview of sound in Linux (from Slashdot):
http://insanecoding.blogspot.com/2009/06/state-of-sound-in-linux-not-so-sorry.html
so I have a better idea what's happening under the hood now.

Ok, that sounds sensible.  I've saved your message for future reference!
