I had this problem with 2.0.0 on my new Pentium, except I got
the message after about 1 second of output when I would cat
files to /dev/audio. I can't test any more, because I solved
the problem by moving the SB16 card (back) to a 486 running
1.2.13, where it works fine.

The SB16 and the Pentium are PnP, the 486 is not.
