The driver has been updated since 4.5R.  If you find the problem still exists 
when you've updated to a more recent release, send an email to 
sound at  4.8R is due any minute now if you don't want the 
disappointment of a new release happening after upgrading to 4.7 you might 
wait just a smidgeon longer.
