Hi Jerome,

Thanks for opening the Mantis issue to document this problem. At first
glance it looks like a VM and/or plugin bug, and probably not directly
related to the 4.1 release. For that reason, I would say that it probably
does *not* need to be addressed for the 4.1 release.

Actually, it's pretty common for bugs like this to leave no stack trace
behind, so there may not be a stack trace available. In that case, any
information about the configuration of the Linux sound system that fails
might be helpful.
