I've got a problem. I've got an Audigy 2ZS sound card, running through ALSA for drivers, and then through pulse. I've also got the pulse-alsa module so the default ALSA card is actually run through pulse. This means that all apps should be running through Pulse.
With TF2, everything works fine - Not only does the audio work(which is going through pulse, as expected), but the microphone works perfectly as well.
With Steam itself, the audio-in part works -- in the 'voice' settings page, I can see the audio-level bar correspond to my voice, so I've got audio-in, but that audio isn't being relayed to my speakers -- i.e. no audio out.
With SS3: BFE, same deal - No audio out(haven't tested microphone).
Now, I've tested everything I can - pacmd shows me that the default-sink is correct, as does alsamixer(Card 0 = pulse)
I've tried testing SDL by having MPlayer route it's output through it, which seems to work, but I'm only testing the x86_64 version.

Note that alsamixer shows me that that SigmaTel chip is part of the Audigy 2ZS card.
Also note that I'm reluctant to post this as a bug just yet, as I'm running a somewhat nonstandard setup.
