File a bug

ubuntu-bug -p alsa-base

Then set the package for the bug (when you get to Launchpad) to be linux

This is a driver bug.


This is a bug in your sound driver. Please file it.

ubuntu-bug -p alsa-base

Once you login on Launchpad, change the package to linux (alsa-base is needed to start to get good debugging information added to it)
