Sound oscillates after upgrade to kde3.3.

I'm using today's current and just finished a kde3.3 upgrade following the instructions in ports/UPDATING all the way down to

rm ~/.kde/share/config/knotifyrc

Although my problem isn't no sound but a high pitched oscillation.

My sound is using the snd_via8233.ko loaded from the loader.conf which also loads sound.ko.  The pciconf -lv shows:

pcm0 at pci0:17:5: class=0x040100 card=0xa1011019 chip=0x30591106
rev=0x50 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'VIA Technologies Inc'
    device   = 'VT8233/33A/8235/8237 AC97 Enhanced Audio
    class    = multimedia
    subclass = audio

I've tried disabling acpi with no change.  I'm runing kdm and it starts at the end of the load cycle.

I have no idea if the problem is the OS or KDE.  Does anyone have any troubleshooting suggestions?



P.S. For the time being I'm just not going to load the driver.  Unfortunately, I've got several of these motherboards and they all have the same problem.
