It might be that my keyboard and mouse +PI draw more then the 1000ma 
that the power supply is supposed to support.   It seemed more stable 
without the mouse.

I'm not sure what the status is of the drivers, modprobe didn't work 
under Debian, when I tried various sound drivers.   I've not had a lot 
of time with it, so I'm sure things will be discovered at my end. :)
