virtualdub has a selection that brings up the audio compressors (and another
that has the video compressors) that can be used to compress a stream.  
The audio compression list is empty, while the video one has all the ones
I expect.  Sounds like from a previous post that it's a problem of not
related to the audio device.

uh, I wish I could be more specific, but gdb (at least under solaris) is
pretty abysmal as far as multitheading apps go, and since the problem doesn't
happen under linux and that wine doesn't work with the bundled assember/compiler 
(which rules out the use of the better forte tools), tracking this down is slow
going.  The current version oddly brings up virtualdub fine, but now fails
bringing up solitaire (ugh).  Look like something broke in the X stuff, but
that's pure speculation right now.
