Well, is it possible to port the patch to 3.0.x for testing even if it 
doesn't make it into the 3.0.x series? I don't have the resources to switch 
my whole system to 3.1 in the near future :-(.

The KDE problem is easy to recognize, if you have sound working, it's OK 
(at least better than now), otherwise there are still problems. Or, if you 
don't want to run all of KDE (actually you only need kdelibs and kdebase) 
for testing, just start 'artsd' and then use 'artscat' and 'artsplay' (see for documentation).
