Heads-up: ALSA 1.1.7 breaks Audacious
Just as a heads-up:
If updating ALSA from 1.1.6 to 1.1.7, Audacious' ALSA output plugin refuses to initialize if the audio buffer size is below 2000 ms.
Don't know more yet.

So fix ALSA? Point releases (1.1.6 -> 1.1.7) are by definition not supposed to break API.
Edit: 1.1.7 is working fine here on Arch Linux, if that matters.
