While that doesn't surprise me...

... that does. He should be getting white noise due to aplay interpreting 
that MP3 that it doesn't understand as a stream of raw U8, 8000 Hz, mono 
samples. That is -- aplay doesn't do .mp3. Try a .wav.

However, since the symptom is not consistent with the above, the problem's 
probably something else. I have no experience with emu10k1, but if noone 
gets you a better/more specific answer, try making the user boot while 
specifying "pci=noacpi" as a kernel parameter -- perhaps it's some weirdo 
IRQ routing problem.
