I have exactly the same problem on my T30 with GM 0.96. It's clearly a
timing issue. The audio is not playing back at the right pitch and
there are periodic "jumps" in the audio as the source "re-syncs". The
problem is clearly present in the audio test.

I had a problem with some older systems with ICH3 audio playing back
too fast. The driver was fixed to correct this problem. Now
GnomeMeeting is doing exactly the opposite. It's playing back too

To make it even odder, I'm running on FreeBSD stable. This implies that
the problem is in GM or one of its libraries.
