I'm under Ubuntu 11.04 and I have 3GB memory

Everthing's working good, but when the usage of memory is overcoming more then ~80% then the sound is crached. It sounds like a speaker is broken, you can hear only squeaky sound.

To fix this problem I have to reboot the system.

Is there the posibility to resolve this problem? Thanks.

This solution does not fully solve the problem but makes it a little easier to fix.

pulseaudio --kill && pulseaudio --start
