Yes, indeed. But the GNOME SoundRecorder works perfectly. So something
is being done differently in GM. Other apps play back at the correct
speed, too.

Yes, FreeBSD uses the OSS API. I suppose that it might be a problem
with full-duplex operation. The sound recorder records and then plays
back, so full-duplex is not involved. Of course, there is not ALSA for
FreeBSD, so that's not an option. GM is using esound.
