alsa-lib works bad with threaded applications
There are some issues with the way alsa/uclibc handles signals and mutexes.
To reproduce: install gst-plugins-base and greate a test audio that you redirect to alsa sink:
gst-launch audiotestsrc ! alsasink
It sounds like beep-beep-beep… rather than a continuos sine sound.
Workaround so far is to use OSS instead of alsa.
