I'll tag in here, rather than start a new thread at the moment. 

F8 sound does seem to have a few kinks to work out.  On one hand, the 
Pulse audio is kind of neat for me - I was just trying MonkeyBubble 
with "Tommy" by the who playing around it. The ability to balance the 
two sound streams is just awesome! On the other, a fair number of my 
other low minded games have lost their audio feed completely. Maelstrom 
hangs completely after the initial splash screen, but never bringing up 
the main menu.

Something doesn't seem quite completely baked here.
