i've got that problem on 2.6.9-ck3 ...

i'm not sure, where the value for the vu-meter is computed, in the card
or in the driver ... if it's in the driver, i suppose there is a wrong
area of memory that's considered as sound data ... if it's computed in
the hdsp itself (possibly, since the hardware mixer is quite powerfull)
there might be a problem with the dma on certain machines (although i
don't think that it's related to ico's and my problem with our hdsp)

cheers ... tim
