But I can't get the system to crash to get a traceback. It just hangs.
I tried using the sysrq commands and NMI timeouts and I haven't been able
to get a dump or traceback.

The issue goes back quite a ways (probably it last worked correctly
with 126.96.36.199-68.fc11.i686.PAE). I have a USB headset now so I have been
less concerned about the issue. But several months ago there were some
USB issues and I switched back to motherboard sound during that time and
had a number of hangs, so I opened a new bug (since I am not 100% sure it
is really the same bug as 496536).
