Can you reproduce this consistently?  This is a known bug but no one has
been able to find a good test case.

Yeah the 24 bit SBLive card is completely different and a POS IMHO.  The
Audigy2 is a 24 bit card that retains the good parts of the SBLive (hw
mixing, DSP, wavetable).  But it's more expensive.  And the 24/96 is not
yet supported in Linux (though it should be soon).
