Because I wanted an external card. ;)

Heh, Frank, you're a god, thx. :p I will try get a more bleeding edge setup running and see if I can't sort this out. Incidentally I had the same problem on my Gentoo machine and a fresh Ubuntu 7.10 install: in that dmesg showed some complaint about inconsistent number of interfaces/descriptors? I think the Behringer UCA202 would've been a much more sensible buy for me since it's much cheaper and suits my needs perfectly. Oh bother... ;)
