I haven't tried this (I do have an osx box) because the sound system is
quite a bit different.  Other than this, my assumption is that it will

I also wrote a minimul full-duplex test program using the native freebsd
audio api (which is refreshingly simple and well thought out).  It also
rebooted the system.  My assumption is that there is a bug in the drivers.
