Problems recording sound from line input

I'm having trouble recording sound from the line in on my SB 16. I'm using 
the sbc(4) bridge driver and pcm(4).

When I record from /dev/dsp at 22050Hz, 16 bit, sterio, all is fine, but as 
soon as I record 44100Hz or 48000Hz, none of the recording tools I have 
tried give me anything, and most of them crash within a few seconds, and 
logs fill up with:

pcm0:record:0: record interrupt timeout, channel dead

Does the bridge driver and/or pcm not support 44.1kHz or 48kHz, or am I 
doing something wrong?
