Yep. And it was working fine until a couple of weeks ago. I don't think 
I have done anything untoward.

The only software which I compile from source is completely unrelated to 
audio (things like OpenVPN, mainly for work).

I have just noticed a recent thread on this list (started by Carlos 
Pino) with a very similar sounding problem.

No solution yet, though...
