When I was using the HDSP9652 I didn't have any problems with specific 
applications not working with the card, although I did at times have to 
use the plug interface if an app (like xine) couldn't do a frequency 
conversion itself.

The only limitation I ran into was that I had to use a frames/buffer 
value of 2. The RME cards wouldn't accept anything except that. I could 
run the buffer size anywhere from 64-4K to change the latency based on 
what I needed.
