recordMyDesktop audio troubles with Hardy

A few days ago a bought a new laptop: a DELL Inspiron 1525 (T8100 processor, 4GB RAM, 320GB hard disk). I chose it because all hardware (except the wireless card) is Intel based (audio/video) and I like Intel’s policy about open source drivers.

Everything is working smoothly, I had to configure nothing! Compiz works wonderfully and everything else too.

But here comes a little problem, I need to create screencast, the built-in mic is not so good thus I plug-in an external mic and start gtk-recordMyDesktop.

Ugly surprise, the audio is choppy and I can’t get it to work… I tried some workarounds found here and there but none is working :-(

Another problem, when I record a long screencast, gtk-recordMyDesktop hangs during the export phase.

I didn’t experience none of these troubles with my old laptop (DELL Inspiron 6000).

Can someone point me in the right direction?
