I had none with all the sound cards I have tried so far. (5)

No, this is not a PA problem, although it used to be one.
I got in touch with Phil Burk and he spent kindly some times to check 
PA with a MOTU and a Hammerfall on OSX without any problems.

That is true, the version of PA released in April solved most of the 
problem of audio in PD, apart from the inputs problem unfortunately.

I was actually waiting for some people to bring more to that problem 
which is a real one.
A strange fact however that I did not post: an official update of PA 
dated from April is meant to be part of pd0.37, but we find the same 
problem in pd0.37 than with the previous version of PA.
I have tried however to compile pd again with the latest version of PA 
but without success. I don' t understand that and this is mainly why I 
am still on pd0.36. I think there is something wrong with the way pd 
communicate with PA because it made no difference with any version of 
PA I have tried when compiling.

I have had no problem with MIDI with the Fastlane, the microexpress and 
recently with an Edirol 1 1 except maybe the time I spent to find the 
right ports : midiindev 0 midiout dev 5
