 My linux box is in the theatre right now, I will look tonight. I am not 
using anything fancy. alsa 0.9b10. 
I am not using a hammerfall card, but a RME 8 channel card, which is very 
different hardware. I used to have endless problems getting it to work, but 
that turned out to be IRQ conflicts. It seems that alsa has become a little 
more sensitive to those with version 0.9.
Looking at the code, I would say that any card you can get to work with 
aplay should work with pd, but apperently this is not the case.
Have you tried the -noadc and -nodac options ? I once got rid of similar 
stuck audio when I only used the output.
